Just get them to the church on time!

Earlier today Kensington Palace released a statement saying that Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle will begin at noon on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, about 22 miles outside of London.

According to the statement, the Right Rev. David Conner, the dean of Windsor, will conduct the service. The Most Rev. Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, will officiate when the couple takes their marriage vows.

After the hour-long wedding ceremony, Harry and Markle’s carriage make a procession that will start at St. George’s Chapel and leave Windsor Castle then continue along High Street through Windsor Town before returning to Windsor Castle on a route called the Long Walk with will give the crowds and local well-wishers plenty of opportunity to see the newly married royal couple.
“They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and enjoy the atmosphere of this special day,” the Kensington Palace statement reads.
After the carriage procession, the newlyweds will attend a reception at St. George’s Hall, where they will rejoin their wedding guests. Harry’s grandparents Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, his father Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince William (almost certainly to be Harry’s best man) and his wife, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge will all be in attendance. Prince George and Princess Charlotte are expected to be part of the ceremony as they did in Catherine’s sister, Pippa Middleton’s wedding last year.

“Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received since announcing their engagement,” the Kensington Palace statement reads. “They are very much looking forward to the day and to being able to share their celebrations with the public.”

Invitations for the wedding of the year have not yet been sent out and guest list remains a closely guarded secret but will likely be filled with celebrities like Serena Williams, a friend of Meghan’s, and President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, a close friends of Harry’s. The couple is expected to fill St. George’s Chapel, which has a capacity to hold 800. And if you’re wondering who their wedding band is, here’s the odds-on favorite.
