Prince Harry got official consent from Her Majesty the Queen last month to marry Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19 – but wedding plans have been underway for months.
The wedding service will begin at midday, meaning it’s unlikely to clash with the 2018 FA Cup Final that falls on the same date, but that usually kicks off later in the day, according to The Guardian.
The Dean of Windsor will conduct the service and the Archbishop of Canterbury will officiate as the couple make their vows.

At 1 p.m. Harry and Meghan will embark on a carriage procession from St George’s Chapel through Windsor Town returning to Windsor Castle along the Long Walk, which will offer some members of the public a glimpse of the newly married couple.
Kensington Palace said the couple “hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day.”
They’ve invited over 2,000 members of the public into the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the couple and their guests arrive, and to watch the carriage procession as it departs from the castle.
There will be a reception for the couple and their guests from the congregation at St George’s Hall following the service.
