The holy solemnization which will come up on Saturday, May 19, at St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry was christened. It was gathered that it has become a very “special place” for the couple in their relationship so far.
The service will begin at exactly 12 pm.
Invitations have been posted to 600 lucky guests, with a select 200 close friends invited to an after party at Frogmore House, Windsor.
The couple does not have an official list of political leaders on the guest list which means neither Prime Minister Theresa May or US President Donald Trump will be going, and former US President Barack Obama has also missed out.
There’s also a strict instruction that bans cameras and bulky bags, adding that guests will be asked to “surrender mobile telephones and any devices used for image capture”.
They further specify that guests should not wear medals, in a list of suggestions about accessories that include: “No swords.”
The Duke of Cambridge will be Harry’s best man, missing the FA Cup final to be at his brother’s side while the bride Ms Markle will have no adult bridesmaid because she’s unable to choose between her friends’, and will instead be surrounded by children as page boys, bridesmaids and flower girls.
Ms Markle’s stylist and close friend Ms Mulroney runs a bridal store in Toronto was said to have helped the bride choose her gown.
The couple will be making their vows at St George’s Chapel, which last hosted a royal wedding in May 2008 when Peter Phillips – son of Princess Royal – married Autumn Kelly. Prince Edward also wed Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, there in June 1999.
The traditional ceremony will be conducted by The Dean of Windsor, The Rt Revd. David Conner while the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will officiate at the couple make their marriage vows.
In addition, the royal wedding comprises two receptions and not one;
The first, more formal afternoon reception for some 600 guests, will be hosted by the Queen. The 180-ft long room, traditionally used for state banquets, seats up to 162 people and was redesigned in a modern Gothic style – with walls lined with suits of armour – following the fire at the castle in 1992.
The second evening reception, for 200 close friends and family, will be thrown at Frogmore House by the Prince of Wales. Standing about half a mile south of Windsor Castle in Windsor Home Park, Frogmore House has been a Royal Residence since 1792. It is where Harry and Ms Markle posed for their official engagement photos in November.
The prince will be putting pen to paper to write his speech for their reception. But Ms Markle, who is an accomplished public speaker, is expected to break with tradition and deliver her own as well, offering “affectionate” praise of her new husband, thanks to the Queen and a few suitable jokes.
The former actress, is “ready” to speak at the reception, should her father Thomas Markle choose to avoid the limelight, the Sunday Times reported earlier this year.
Mr Markle, an award-winning Hollywood writing director who now lives a quiet life in Mexico, is expected to walk Ms Markle down the aisle, but may not make a formal speech.
Harry and Ms Markle will be hoping their chosen destination stays top secret as they enjoy a break after the busy run-up to the wedding.
