Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to marry at Windsor Castle chapel in May…

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have revealed they will get married in St George’s Chapel, in Windsor Castle, in May next year.

The Royal couple confirmed more details of their big day after announcing their engagement on Monday, following weeks of speculation.

In a statement, the couple named the venue, saying the Queen had given permission for them to use the chapel, and said the wedding would take place in May 2018.

Although exact date has not yet been revealed, the Prime Minister has avoided answering a question put to her over whether there might be a Bank Holiday to “cheer everybody up”.

She said: “You talk about cheering people up. I think seeing two young people in love (does that).”

She went onto say that the couple have “given a lot of thought as to what it means to be a modern royal couple in today’s age,” and said she wished them “great happiness for the future”.

Sky’s Senior Political Correspondent Jason Farrell, who is travelling with the Prime Minister on her trip to the Middle East, said: “Theresa May seemed genuinely delighted by the engagement and her face lit up as she talked about it.

“But despite the aircraft noise I’m sure she heard the question, and it was whether she would cheer everyone up by announcing a bank holiday to celebrate the day of the wedding as happened with William and Catherine? She seemed to imply that we didn’t need a holiday because we should be happy enough to see two people in love.”

The Royal Family will pay for the majority of the wedding, which Prince Harry and Ms Markle said would reflect who they are as a couple.

Ms Markle, a Protestant, is to be baptised and confirmed before the wedding day.

Jason Knauf, Prince Harry’s communication’s secretary, said Windsor is a “very special place” for Harry and that the couple had spent time there during their 16-month romance.

He said they were delighted to be holding the wedding in the “beautiful grounds of Windsor”.

Mr Knauf added that the couple were “grateful to the Queen for granting permission for the use of the Chapel”.

Prince Harry and his fiancee also hope to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations and are considering how to make that happen.

The statement added: “This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters of the Bride and Groom.

“Prince Harry and Ms Markle are leading the planning process for all aspects of the wedding.”

The bride-to-be will also become a UK citizen but the process could take a number of years.

The couple have also announced their first engagement together, which will take place on Friday 1 December.

They will visit Nottingham, where Prince Harry started the Full Effect programme in 2014 through The Royal Foundation.

Prince Harry and Ms Markle will start their visit at the National Justice Museum, followed by a walkabout, considered a Royal rite of passage for the new family member, and then a visit to Nottingham Contemporary.

At the arts centre, they will join celebrations for World AIDS day hosted by the Terrence Higgins Trust.

They will end their visit by going to Nottingham Academy to meet Full Effect mentors and partners.

Mr Knauf said: “Ms Markle cannot wait to meet many of the young people Prince Harry has told her so much about.”
