Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Have Released Their Wedding Itinerary
Here's when to tune into the live event.
Kensington Palace just revealed the timeline of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding day, and just like you did for the marriage of Prince William and Duchess Kate, you'll have to tune in early if you want to catch the event live.
As previously shared, the prince and the former actress are tying the knot on Saturday, May 19. Now, the royal family has shared that their festivities will begin at 7 a.m. EST (or 12 p.m. GMT for the bride and groom themselves). An hour later, after getting married, they'll ride in a carriage "through Windsor Town," before returning to Windsor Castle. "They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day," the announcement shares.
The ceremony service will take place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, and will be conducted by The Dean of Windsor. Meanwhile, the Archbishop of Canterbury will officiate. Following the ceremony, the reception will be held at St. George's Hall, and later, "The Prince of Wales will give a private evening reception for the couple and their close friends and family."
"Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received since announcing their engagement," the statement reads. "They are very much looking forward to the day and to being able to share their celebrations with the public," and Kensington Palace looks "forward to sharing further details about the wedding day in the weeks and months ahead."
