Wedding of Prince Harry and
Meghan Markle
Date 20 May 2018 12pm BST
Venue St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle
Location Windsor, Berkshire, England

The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is due to take place on 19 May 2018 at Windsor Castle in England. The groom, Prince Harry, is a member of the British royal family; the bride, Meghan Markle, is an American actress.


Traditionally, royal princes have been awarded peerages prior to their marriages; this occurred with both of Prince Harry's uncles, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex, as well as his elder brother, the Duke of Cambridge. In the event that Prince Harry is awarded a title, his wife would automatically receive the equivalent spousal title (e.g. if he is made a duke, then she would automatically become a duchess). Should no title be awarded, Markle will assume the title HRH Princess Henry of Wales. However, in the present reign the announcements of princes' titles have only been made on the morning of the wedding day.
