Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding leads a busy 2018 for the royal family.
The flame-haired royal is set to tie the knot with the ‘Suits’ actress on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, Berkshire – the same day as the FA Cup Final.
Kensington Palace had announced earlier this month: “His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle will marry on 19th May 2018. Today’s announcement follows earlier confirmation of the month of the wedding and its location at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.”
2018 will also be a big year for Prince Harry’s brother Prince William and his wife, Duchess Catherine, as they will welcome their third child into the world in April.
In October, Kensington Palace announced the couple would be expecting their baby in April.
A spokesperson said in a statement: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in April 2018.”
The child will be fifth in line to the throne, with the couple expected to choose a very traditional name. Alice, Amelia, Albert and Charles are some of the top contenders.
It also marks a big year for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s daughter Princess Charlotte, two, who will be attending nursery next year at Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington. Prince George will continue at Thomas’s Battersea.
Following their marriage, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will embark on their first royal tour as a married couple. It is thought they could go to Canada as it was Meghan’s home for a number of years. In October 2018, the Invictus Games – which Prince Harry set up for wounded ex-service personnel – will take place in Sydney, and it is incredibly likely that the newly-married couple will make their way over to Australia for the games.
