Markle's #wedding #date:
Couple confirm they will marry on #Saturday #May #19
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding is to take place on Saturday May 19, #Kensington #Palace
The pair, whose #engagement
was confirmed last month, are tying the knot at St George's #Chapel
in #Windsor #Castle.
The couple's chosen day clashes with another big event - it is also the FA Cup final at #Wembley.
As President of the Football Association, Harry's older brother the #Duke
of Cambridge usually attends the high-profile match and presents the trophy.
But this year, #William,
who is tipped to be Harry's best man, looks likely to be otherwise engaged with wedding duties.
Harry and Ms Markle have gone against tradition by choosing a Saturday.
weddings usually take place on a weekday. The Duke and #Duchess
of Cambridge wed on a Friday and the #Queen
on a #Thursday.
But Harry and his fiancee's choice avoids the issue of whether or not the royal wedding should be a Bank Holiday.
The May wedding will also have been picked to give Kate time to recover after the birth of her third child, which is due in April.
After the couple's engagement was announced last month, Ms Markle, the American actress, is set to appear at church with the Windsors at #Sandringham
on Christmas Day.
Palace aides have already said that the prince and Ms Markle's wedding will "reflect their characters and personalities" and be a moment of "fun and joy".
They will say "I do" in the historic surrounds of the Castle's 15th century St George's Chapel.
Ms Markle, who is to become a British citizen, is being both baptised and confirmed ahead of the religious ceremony.
The Royal family are paying for the wedding, including the church service, the music, the flowers and the reception.
But the security costs for the high-profile event are falling to the taxpayer.
The Queen will be there, as will the rest of the Royal family, along with Ms Markle's parents Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland.
