Everything you need to know about the royal wedding

When and where will it be?

This Saturday, 19 May, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will exchange vows at noon (7pm, Malaysian time) in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The chapel will be decorated by London florist Philippa Craddock, with white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves sourced from the garden and parkland of Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park. 

The guest list

Around 800 (lucky) guests will be inside the chapel, while more than 2,640 people have been invited inside the grounds of Windsor Castle on the big day. Being the sixth in line to the throne, Prince Harry is not obligated to invite political leaders or diplomats to the celebration. Some of the guests were announced on Twitter, along with the stories of how they have served their communities.


The bridal party

Meghan Markle will be accompanied by six bridesmaids on Saturday: the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s daughter, Princess Charlotte, Prince Harry goddaughters, Florence van Cutsem and Zelie Warren, two of Markle’s goddaughters, as well as Ivy Mulroney, the daughter of Markle’s close friend Jessica Mulroney. The page boys are Charlotte’s brother Prince George, Harry’s godson Jasper Dyer, and Ivy Mulroney’s brothers, twins Brian and John.

Meghan has opted not to have a maid of honour, while Prince William will be Harry’s best man. 



The photographer

Renowned fashion and portrait photographer Alexi Lubomirski, who photographed Harry and Meghan’s engagement portraits, will take the official photographs of the newly weds at Windsor Castle after the ceremony.


The wedding dress

The dress is probably the biggest mystery of all. Names have been swirling in the rumour mill, but we are unlikely to find out anything about it until we see the bride on 19 May.
