Cynon Valley - - YOUR NEWS -

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.
