Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal wedding is upon us! The wedding will take place on the 19th of May 2018 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor. The couple began dating in 2016 and announced their engagement in November. The couple has chosen to renounce a few traditions such as:

  • choosing to wed on a Saturday as opposed to a weekday
  •  the cake will be a lemon and elderflower cake rather than the traditional fruit cake
  • excluding political figures on their guest list
  • Meghan will make a speech at the wedding which has been previously done by men, including the father of the bride and the best man
  • the wedding will be more intimate at St George’s Chapel which seats less than 800 people

We can’t wait to watch it!
