The long-awaited royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is one of the things that almost the whole world is looking forward to because it is the biggest wedding of the year. It has caused all the excitement it can generate, for it seems to have defied all the unspoken laws that existed in the minds of many people regarding what a royal couple should look like or what material they should be made of.
This is obvious, of course, when you consider the fact that both the Prince and Mrs. Markle come from different parts of the world in almost every respect. In the end, however, love has its course, and the world seems really happy enough for the couple to want to know every detail about the wedding.
Here is all we know thus far:
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Royal Wedding: Date and Venue
The date for the grand ceremony in which the couple will exchange vows before God, their families, friends, and the Queen is May 19, 2018, and the venue for the wedding will be the Windsor grounds at St. George’s Chapel. The 14th-century chapel is of great importance to the couple as it was there that Prince Harry was baptized. It has seen many royal weddings in the past, including the blessing of the marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla.
Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, will perform the wedding ceremony, which begins at 12 noon, while the procession starts at 1 pm. The whole process will take one hour and thirty minutes.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Royal Wedding Guest List
In contrast to that of Prince William and Kate Middleton, who saw up to 3,000 guests, only 600 guests are expected here. Basically, St. George’s Chapel will still have enough space, as it offers space for approximately 800 guests.
The guest list has already been prepared and published by The Barnard and Westwood, the official editor of the throne since 1985.
For the reception, which will be hosted by the Queen at Windsor Castle, 2,640 people are said to have been invited into the castle walls.
In addition to the royal family and close family members of the bride, many other stars are expected to attend the wedding and it is speculated that people such as Victoria and David Beckham, the best friend and actress of the bride-to-be Priyanka Chopra, Patrick J. Adams, Abigail Spencer, and Serena Williams will be on the list. Rumor has it that Millie Macintosh and many other stars are also on the big list.
Although there has been speculation that a handwritten letter from Markle’s half-brother, insisting that she has been avoiding her father, Thomas Markle Sr., reveals that he will be very present at the wedding and that he might be the one to give away his daughter.
At the prestigious royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the guests are expecting Sir. Elton John, who will be present at the event. For this reason, the singer is said to have canceled his Las Vegas appearances, which were previously scheduled for May 18 and 19. He has always been very close to the royal family, and in 1997 he performed at the funeral of Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana.
Although there are many celebrities invited to the wedding, many politicians are to be removed from the list altogether, as Prince Harry is not someone who is very close to the people in the political circle or even close enough to the Crown. Therefore, people like Theresa May, the Obamas, President Donald Trump, and Melania Trump do not face to be seen at the royal wedding.
Meghan’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson will definitely not be there in the same way as her half-siblings Samantha Markle and Thomas Markle Jr.
Ushers at the Wedding and Bridesmaid
As The Sun reported, Tom “Skippy” Inskip, Charlie Van Straubenzee, Tom Van Straubenzee, Adam Bidwell, Arthur Landon, William Van Cutsem, and Mark Dyer will be the ushers at the event of the year.
For the bridesmaids, 36-year-old author Lindsay Jill Roth and Jessica Mulroney were named as the prospective bridesmaids.
Flower Girls and Pageboys
Princess Charlotte and Ivy Mulroney, a daughter of Meghan’s BFF, are said to be the flower girls next to the twin daughters of Benita Litt. For the Page Boys, the royal couple is said to have Prince George and Jasper Dyer.
The Titles of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry After the Wedding
