The world is prepared for another royal wedding, this time between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It is the time for the most important moment of their shared lives to date, imbued with centuries-old tradition as they will take vow before God, their families and the Queen.
But for the couple, they have promised that this wedding will focus on joy, fun and a chance to celebrate with the public. The wedding comes up today at St. George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry was christened. The wedding will kick off by 12pm and the public will be opportune to watch it live from the comfort of their homes.
Invitations have been posted to 600 lucky guests, with a select 200 close friends invited to an after party at Frogmore House, in the grounds of Windsor Castle. The Duke of Cambridge will be Harry’s best man, missing the FA Cup final to be at his brother’s side. The Duke, who has always been the front-runner for the supporting role at the May wedding, is “honoured” to have been asked, Kensington Palace said.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte look almost certain to be page boy and flower girl. The siblings already know the score – they performed those roles at the wedding of Pippa Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister, to James Matthews in May last year. Kensington Palace has announced that Ms Markle will have no adult bridesmaids ‘because she’s unable to choose between her friends’, and will instead be surrounded by children as page boys, bridesmaids and flower girls.
