Harry and Meghan reveal latest royal wedding plans
PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have revealed eagerly-awaited details of their forthcoming wedding.
The pair will have the eyes of the world on them on May 19 when they tie the knot at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
Kensington Palace has released an update on the big day, which takes place on the same date as the the 2018 FA Cup Final.
Fans of both football and the royals will be relieved to know that the wedding service will begin at midday – meaning that a clash is very unlikely as recent finals have kicked off at 5.30pm.
Information released included the ceremony time and confirmation that Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will marry the couple.
The Rt Rev David Conner, Dean of Windsor, will conduct the service at the Castle’s 15th century chapel.
At 1pm, the newlyweds will embark on a carriage procession along a route including Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road, Long Walk and finally Windsor Castle.
After the service, there will be a reception at St George’s Hall for the couple and guests from the congregation.
Later that evening, the Prince of Wales will give a private evening reception for the couple and their close friends and family.
The royal family are paying for the wedding, including the church service, the music, the flowers and the reception.
But the security costs for the high-profile event are falling to the taxpayer.
The palace said further details about the wedding day will be revealed in the weeks and months ahead.
