Royal watchers have been waiting to hear when Prince Harry’s wedding to American Meghan Markle will happen. This morning, the date has been officially released by the Royal Family.

The youngest son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles will tie the knot on May 19, 2018. The ceremony will be performed at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor. The couple chose Windsor because it is a very special place to Harry.

Kensington Palace tweeted the news this morning. This date breaks with tradition a bit because Royal weddings usually occur on weekdays, but Harry and Meghan will be exchanging vows on a Saturday.

Harry said he knew Markle was “the one” from “the very first time we met,” and doesn’t want to wait long to make it official. Harry’s brother and sister-in-law are expecting their third child the month before the wedding, so a brand new member of the Royal Family will be joining the festivities.

As a member of the Royal Family, there are some wedding rules that will have to be followed during Harry’s wedding, right down to the flavor of the cake. More information on some of those rules is in the video below.

Prince Harry and his bride-to-be will be spending Christmas with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at Sandringham House. The groom’s grandmother previously gave her blessing and permission for Harry to marry the American divorcee. Markle is apparently fitting in nicely with the Royal Family. The Prince reports that even the Queen’s beloved corgis love the American actress.

The couple announced their engagement in November. Ms. Markle, who is currently Protestant, will be baptized into the Church of England and confirmed prior to the ceremony.

The Royal Family will pay for the wedding, including the reception. Prince Harry’s niece and nephew, Charlotte, and George will join the bride in walking down the aisle.
