Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have now revealed more details regarding their May wedding. The couple released a statement and shared information on their social media accounts about exactly when and where proceedings will take place.
The wedding will start at 12pm on Saturday 19 May, where Meghan and Harry will say their vows at St George's Chapel to around 800 guests. After the ceremony, the couple will travel through Windsor in a carriage at 1pm before they join their guests for the reception at St George’s Hall.
This announcement confirms that the ceremony will not actually clash with the FA Cup final, which kicks off at 5.30pm - much to the relief of football fans. The Duke of Cambridge – as president of the Football Association – usually attends the match and presents the trophy, but clearly he will have to give this year's final a miss.
“They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day,” Kensington Palace said of the decision to include a carriage journey.
The couple also thanked fans, saying they were “hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received”.

As of yet, there's no word as to what roles Prince George and Princess Charlotte will have in the wedding, but it's still expected that they'll be pageboy and flower girl/bridesmaid respectively.
