Behold! New Details About Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding Are Here
The palace shared on Twitter some exciting details about Harry and Markle’s May 19 celebration, including the time (prepare for some sleep deprivation) and the day-of itinerary.
The wedding service will begin at 12noon at St George's Chapel. The Dean of Windsor will conduct the service and The Archbishop of Canterbury will officiate as the couple make their vows. pic.twitter.com/dTS56fy22c— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) February 12, 2018
Here Comes the Bride
The ceremony will commence at 12 p.m. London time at St. George’s Chapel, with the Archbishop of Canterbury officiating and the Dean of Windsor conducting the service. Noon is a lovely time for a wedding, but for those of us residing stateside, that means rising at the early hour of 4 a.m. PST or 7 a.m. EST. Totally worth it.
At 1pm the couple, now married, will undertake a Carriage Procession from St George's Chapel through Windsor Town returning to Windsor Castle along the Long Walk. pic.twitter.com/Lw6RaqY0p5— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) February 12, 2018
Your Chariot Awaits
After tying the knot, the prince and his duchess will ride along the streets of London in a horse-drawn carriage. Ah, so romantic.
Following the service, there will be a reception at St George's Hall for the couple and the guests from the congregation. pic.twitter.com/t6P95lJyZC— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) February 12, 2018

A Reception to Remember
Harry’s dad, Prince Charles, will host a reception for the newlyweds after their carriage ride.
No details yet on whether invitations have gone out, if Prince William will preside as best man or how many guests will join the festivities. All we know for sure is that we’ve never been so excited to wake up early on a Saturday.
