Every Significant Detail Regarding Harry and Meghan’s Upcoming Royal Wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are hearing wedding bells! The couple first struck up a romance back in 2016, and now that they’re finally engaged, details about their upcoming nuptials have begun trickling in. While Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding was a lavish affair watched by billions around the world, it turns out, Harry is envisioning the total opposite for his.

According to Us Weekly, “pomp and pageantry” are the last things Harry reportedly wants. “It would stop it from turning into a total media circus and give the day a sense of privacy that Harry so badly craves.” Still, that doesn’t mean Harry won’t have the support of his family. According to the insider, there’s “no question” that Queen Elizabeth II would attend. Keep reading to see everything we know so far about Harry and Meghan’s big day.

The Date

Harry and Meghan are set to tie the knot in May 2018, Kensington Palace revealed just 24 hours after announcing the couple’s engagement. The couple is reportedly expediting the wedding to ensure that Harry’s grandfather, Prince Philip, can attend. Philip is 96 and recently retired from his royal duties.

The Location

The couple will exchange “I dos” at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Queen Elizabeth II “has granted permission for the wedding to take place at the Chapel” as it is one of her official residences.

Will It Be Televised?”

Yes! According to Brides, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace announced during a recent press conference that everyone will have the pleasure of tuning into Harry and Meghan’s big day, just like we did for Will and Kate’s wedding in 2011. “The couple of course wants the day to be a special, celebratory moment for their friends and family,” the spokesperson explained. “They also want the day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too and are currently working through ideas for how this might be achieved.”
