Russia is to host Britain’s first royal wedding in more than a century – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The rumoured wedding, to take place at Windsor Castle in May, is the latest coup for Prince Harry.
When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex marry, Prince Harry will become the first ever grandson of the Queen to wed a divorcee.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday May 19, 2020.
In the UK, the couple will say “I do” in front of 600 guests in St George’s Chapel, in the grounds of Windsor Castle, before entertaining friends and family from their home base at Nottingham Cottage, in the grounds of the castle.
Their wedding would be the first royal wedding since Queen Victoria’s wedding in 1840.
It will be Prince Harry’s second marriage – the future queen and her husband had a divorce in 1923 – and Meghan’s first.
It will be the first UK royal wedding at St George’s Chapel, after King George III married Queen Charlotte there in 1748.
The ceremony will be conducted by the Dean of Windsor, David Conner. The Invictus Games founder will read from the Old Testament, Clare Barron from the Humanities will read from the New Testament, the St George’s Choir will sing from Shakespeare’s works, while the Rustici Riccardi organ will also be played.
