"The marriage of His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle will take place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle in May, 2018", the release reads. Here's what we know so far about how the wedding will be different.
Kensington Palace said that Windsor Castle, a royal residence west of London, had become "a special place" for the couple. It's likely that it will take place on one of the bank holiday weekends, which fall on both the first and last weekends of May, however it doesn't look likely at this stage that we'll be given an extra day off to celebrate.

Sure, Prince Edward had a much more toned-down wedding to his wife Sophie in the chapel in 1999, managing to avoid making it a "state occasion" by having no politicians present-including even the prime minister, Tony Blair.
