In just over three months Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will say “I do” and Kensington Palace has announced new royal wedding day details including timing, a procession and multiple receptions

Royal weddings are always history-making events with every single detail dissected (and copied) from the wedding dress to the mode of transport to the bridesmaids to the guest list to the flower arrangements.

Take for example the wedding of stunning American actress Grace Kelly to Prince Rainier III of Monaco, their nuptials took place over 60 years ago and yet the high-necked, long-sleeved gown Princess Grace wore is still as relevant today as it was in 1956, with so many brides including Princess Kate and Miranda Kerr referencing the style when they walked down the aisle. Or how Mariah Carey reportedly wanted to replicate Princess Diana and Prince Charles wedding when she married Sony Music boss Tommy Mottola in 1993.

Which is why we're super excited to share all the recently announced details about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's May 19 wedding day details.

Kensington Palace posted on social media that the wedding will take place at 12 noon (10pm Australian EST) on May 19 in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, "...followed by a carriage procession at 1pm around Windsor Town, and reception at St George's Hall. Later that evening, The Prince of Wales will give a private evening reception for the couple and their close friends and family."


The Palace also confirmed the Dean of Windsor David Conner will conduct the service and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will officiate over the wedding vows.

For royal fans hoping to catch a live glimpse of the newlyweds, the carriage processional route the newlyweds will take has been revealed with the carriage set to depart from Windsor Castle go through Windsor Town and return to the Castle along the Long Walk. Start planning your position now.

No firm details on who will design the dress yet but Vanity Fair reports Markle has, "...apparently chosen her wedding dress designer. The name is being kept under lock and key although Meghan has told friends she wants 'a glamorous but traditional gown.'"

Ed Sheeran is rumoured to be the entertainment for the royal wedding.
