Another royal wedding is on the horizon, and it's coming sooner than you think. On Monday, Nov. 27, the Prince of Wales announced the engagement of Prince Harry to Meghan Markles. The announcement included that the wedding would take place in the spring of 2018, but now we have a month and a location. On Tuesday, Nov. 28, Kensington Palace announced Prince Harry and Markles will be married in May 2018 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. These photos of St. George's Chapel prove the wedding is going to be straight out of your Pinterest dreams.
The initial statement from the Clarence House announcing the engagement stated the following:
His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle. The wedding will take place in Spring 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course. His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle's parents. The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.
Then, on Tuesday, Nov. 28, Kensington Palace released the following memo:
The marriage of His Royal Highness Prince Henry Of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle will take place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle in May, 2018. Her Majesty The Queen has granted permission for the wedding to take place at the Chapel. The Royal Family will pay for the wedding. Further details about the wedding will be announced in due course.
And because we expect no less from the Royal Family, St. George's Chapel is probably the most gorgeous thing I've laid eyes on.
Seriously gorgeous. I can almost see Markle walking down the aisle in a beautiful gown with the seats full of family and friends.
But before that happens, there are a few more hoops to jump through. According to BBC News, Markle will have to be baptised and confirmed before the wedding, as she is protestant. She also intends to become a British citizen, so she will be working on that for the next few years.
Of course, with planning such a beautiful wedding, it all had to start with a beautiful proposal. The couple sat down with BBC News for their first official interview as an engaged couple and told the story of how Prince Harry asked Markle to be his wife. Prince Harry revealed the big moment happened earlier in November at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace, where they live, when they were cooking some roast chicken.
Prince Harry: Roasting a chicken... trying to roast a chicken.
Meghan Markle: Trying to roast a chicken and it just — just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.
Prince Harry: Of course.
Interview: Was it an instant yes from you? [Meghan]
Meghan Markle: Yes, as a matter of fact, I barely let you [Harry] finish proposing. I said, 'Can I say yes now?'
Prince Harry: She didn't even let me finish. She said 'Can I say yes? Can I say yes?', and then there were hugs and I had the ring in my finger and I was like, 'Can I give you the ring?' She goes, 'Oh yes, the ring.'
So, so cute and so, so intimate. We can't wait to see what's in store for this gorgeous couple.
