Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry on Saturday 19th May, 2018, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
The wedding date announcement follows the confirmation that the ceremony would take place in May at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, which came earlier this month.

Earlier this week it was revealed that Markle will be spending Christmas at Sandringham with her new fiance and members of the royal family, including the Queen.
The fact that the wedding falls on a Saturday also rules out the possibility of a bank holiday, which many were hoping for, as was the case of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011.
Many of the remaining details of the wedding such as who the bridesmaids and best man will be, whether it will be televised and which designer will make the bride’s dress are yet to be announced.
