Kensington Palace is sharing more details about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day!
In a statement to ET Canada, Kensington Palace said the couple “are hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received since announcing their engagement.”
A partial schedule has been made public for the affairs of Saturday, May 19. “The wedding service will begin at St George’s Chapel at 12,” the statement revealed. “The Dean of Windsor and Right Reverend David Conner will conduct the service. The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, will officiate as the couple make their marriage vows.”
“At 1 p.m., the couple, now married, will undertake a Carriage Procession along a route from St George’s Chapel, leaving Windsor Castle via Castle Hill and processing along the High Street and through Windsor Town, returning to Windsor Castle along the Long Walk,” explained Kensington Palace.
Markle and Harry hope the short journey “will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day.”
“Following the service, there will be a reception at St George’s Hall for the couple and guests from the congregation,” the letter added. “The couple will join this on return from the Carriage Procession.”
“Later that evening, The Prince of Wales will give a private evening reception for the couple and their close friends and family.”
Harry, 33, and Markle, 36, announced their engagement on Nov. 27.
