Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding guest list will include a few last-minute—yet important—additions.

Kensington Palace released a statement yesterday announcing that more than 250 members of the British Armed Forces will provide ceremonial support during the wedding and carriage procession.

It reads, “Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are pleased that members of the Armed Forces will play such a special role in their wedding. The military, and these units in particular, hold a great significance for Prince Harry and the couple are incredibly grateful for their support.”

Prince Harry served in the army for ten years and was even appointed Captain General Royal Marines in December 2017.

According to Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach, chief of the defense staff, “I am proud that members of the Armed Forces have been asked to take part in the ceremonial celebrations taking place on the royal couple’s wedding day. It is a happy occasion for the whole country and reminds us of the role the Armed Forces play in marking important events in the life of the nation.”
