It seems there is little else happening in the UK at the moment other than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s highly anticipated wedding, and we’ve got all the details.
At 12 noon tomorrow the couple are set to wed in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The Chapel dates back to the 14th Century, with magnificent Gothic architecture, we’ve no doubt it will be the perfect setting for the wedding the whole world will be watching. A little more relaxed, if we can say that, than Westminster Abbey where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married, St George’s Chapel seats 800 and offers a bit more privacy. Members of the public have been invited to watch from the grounds of Windsor Castle from 9am. No doubt there will be incredibly strict security checks and it’s been rumoured that invitations included a dress code of “no swords”.
Members of the Royal Family are expected to arrive and enter the chapel through the Galilee Porch at 11.20am. Prince Harry and his brother and best man the Duke of Cambridge are expected to arrive at the chapel’s west steps at 11.45am.
The Queen, expected at 11.55am, will be the final member of the Royal Family to arrive for the service. Meghan Markle is due to arrive at the chapel’s west steps at 11.59am, and is now expected to arrive with her mother Doria. It has also just been confirmed that Prince Charles will now walk Ms Markle down the aisle.
The service will end at 1pm with the couple leaving the chapel at the west steps. Following the service there will be a carriage procession which will end along the beautiful tree-lined Long Walk, taking them to their lunch reception hosted by the Queen at St George’s Hall. At 7pm a second reception will take place for 200 close friends at Frogmore House in the grounds of Windsor Castle, also where the couples engagement photos were taken. Photographer Alexi Lubomirski, who took the engagement shoot photos, will also be taking the photos on the wedding day.
We can’t wait to watch tomorrow and have no doubt it will be an epic wedding!
