Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot on May 19 at Windsor Castle.
The announcement was made on Friday by Kensington Palace, which also confirmed the previous details of their wedding ceremony location at St. George’s Chapel.
“His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle will marry on 19th May 2018,” a tweet from Kensington Palace read.
“Today’s announcement follows earlier confirmation of the month of the wedding and its location at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle,” the statement continued.

It was revealed on Nov. 28 — just one day after the engagement was announced — that Harry, 33, and Markle, 36, would have a spring wedding in the chapel, which is the main place of worship at Windsor Castle.
“Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year,” a spokesman said in a statement. “They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”
The palace also shared that the royal family would foot the bill for the wedding — which some have estimated could have a price tag of up to $32 million in security costs alone.

Windsor Castle — the largest inhabited castle in the world — is located 20 miles west of London and is one of Queen Elizabeth II’s residences where she spends about a month around Easter.
The royal wedding will take place just one month after the expected arrival of Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s third child.
