Royal boos Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will wed in May at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, according to a statement from Kensington.
The date of the wedding will be announced at a later point, with the Royal Family set to look after what will no doubt be extraordinarily extravagant costs for the service, music, flowers and reception.
St George’s Chapel is more intimate and smaller than the vastly more grandiloquent royal wedding options like Westminster Abbey or St Paul‘s Cathedral, but it is still likely comes with much more pomp and grandeur than wherever you’re getting married.
That’s right. I’m sledging your hypothetical wedding.
Markle is a Protestant, and will have to be baptised into the Anglican Church before the ceremony at some point. This is because Henry VIII extremely wanted to divorce Catherine of Aragon in the 1530s. Now Megan Markle has another thing to worry about before her wedding. Thanks Henry!
Spokesman Jason Knauf said Prince Harry and Ms Markle were “leading the planning process for all aspects of the wedding” and working out ways that the public can be involved in the proceedings. Let’s be honest, this will involve a Facebook livestream.
Knauf also confirmed that Markle wants to become a British citizen and will focus on making that a reality over the next few years. You’d think if you marry a Prince of Wales you could just get on the blower to the citizenship office and get them to put you on the list, but apparently there’s more to it.
More info will no doubt come out soon. For now, Markle is apparently “getting to know the UK,” which I assume means she is touring the countryside auditing the grain production of the peasants and serfs. I think that’s what her new job is, anyway.
