Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a lot of wedding planning to do in a very short amount of time.
The couple, who announced their royal engagement on Monday, revealed Tuesday that they will wed sometime in May at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, which is located on the Lower Ward of Windsor Castle and was originally built in the early 13th century.
According to Kensington Palace officials, Meghan will be baptised and confirmed in the Church of England before the church wedding and become a British citizen.
As Hello Magazine explained, the royal family put a lot of thought into the wedding date and location as Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, will give birth to her third child sometime in April. A May wedding will give her just enough time to heal and give Prince William a little time to bond with the newborn.
As for the venue it certainly holds special significance for the entire family, but especially for Harry, who was christened in St. St. George’s Chapel in 1984. Harry’s father, Prince Charles, also married his current wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, in the chapel in 2006.
The church, Hello Magazine explained, is also the final resting place for several royals including Henry VIII, Charles I, Jane Seymour, the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret.
As for the royal couple’s wedding guests, the Guardian is predicting the spring wedding will be a star-studded affair, drawing in Meghan’s famous friends including Serena Williams and Millie Mackintosh. As for Harry’s side you can of course expect Prince William to play a large role, but perhaps even the Obamas will make an appearance and sit on the Prince’s side of the aisle.
Now all they have to do is pick out a dress, a honeymoon location and send us our personal wedding invitation. We’ll be waiting.
