Love is in the air, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding date and venue have been announced

Where are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle getting married?

The couple will tie the knot at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Charles and Camilla had their televised blessing there in 2005 and it offers the couple a more low key venue than Westminster Abbey, where Kate Middleton and Prince William got married.

St George’s Chapel can accommodate 800 guests, whereas the Abbey seats 2,000.

Harry and Meghan have said they are looking at ways to make their wedding an event that members of the public can feel a part of.

It is also the most convenient option for the Queen and Philip, who spend most of their time at the Castle.

Why have Prince Harry and Meghan chosen St George’s Chapel?

St George’s Chapel, completed in 1528, is set in the lower ward of Windsor Castle – one of the most famous and iconic landmarks of the British royal family.

Due to its setting within Horseshoe Cloisters and the Henry VIII gate the chapel will also offer Harry, Meghan and their famous friends and family some privacy on what is sure to be a major global news event.

Following the ceremony, at least part of the reception is likely to take place in St George’s Hall – a grand 180ft-long room within Windsor Castle which is often used for large state banquets.

In recent years, Windsor Castle has also played host to Harry’s father Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall’s blessing after their civil ceremony in 2005.

While in 1999 years Prince William and Harry’s uncle the Earl of Wessex married Sophie Rhys-Jones
