After announcing their engagement last month, an official statement from the Kensington Palace has confirmed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get married on May 19, 2018, at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

It means the couple's wedding will take place on the same day as the FA Cup final.

"Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty the Queen and other close members of his family".

Kensington Palace announced on Friday (15 December) that the engaged couple will exchange their wedding vows on 19 May 2018.

"Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms Markle's parents".

Ms Markle will be baptised into the Church of England and confirmed before the wedding.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh said they were "delighted" for their grandson and his bride-to-be, and "wish them every happiness".

The Royal Family will pay for the wedding, including the service, music, flowers and reception. This breaks the tradition of royal weddings, which usually take on weekdays- the Queen got married on a Thursday and the Duke of Cambridge on a Friday.

"As a strong woman marrying into our royal family, she's going to be a role model for any woman - black, white". Those keen to visit Windsor for Harry and Meghan's wedding are now being urged to contact hotels directly for bookings.

Priyanka and Meghan are close friends who first met at a party in Toronto while Meghan was shooting for Suits.

The couple opened up for the first time about their relationship in an interview last month when Harry told the BBC that his late mother, Princess Diana, would have been "over the moon" about the pair's engagement.

We're so excited for the couple. "It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together".

It is not yet known if the ceremony will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

"It's so transparent that you're practically begging for a royal wedding invite".
