May 19, 2018: Spring wedding for Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle

UNITED KINGDOM - Prince Harry marries American actress Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in Berkshire. Markle, the first American to become a member of the Royal Family, plans to become a British citizen.

The prince was christened in the chapel in Dec 1984 when he was three months old and it has hosted a number of royal weddings in recent years.

The chapel holds 800 guests, and speculation over which royals and celebrities will attend has been frenzied for months. The couple confirmed in April that only personal friends have been invited and that politicians, including British prime minister Theresa May and U.S. President Donald Trump, are not on the guest list. For diplomatic reasons former president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, who are friends of Harry, have not received an invitation, but “the couples look forward to seeing each other soon,” according to a royal source.

The couple, who decided on a Spring wedding, chose May to avoid having the ceremony clash with the birth of the Duchess of Cambridge’s third child and the Queen’s appearance at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London and Windsor – both of which are in April.

The bride, who starred in a long-running American television series called Suits until 2017, gave up her acting career for the marriage. She will join the prince and other royals to work for their charitable causes.
