May 19, 2018 -- Prins Harry trouwt met de voormalige Amerikaanse actrice Meghan Markle in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

The service will begin at 12:00 and be conducted by the Dean of Windsor, The Rt Revd. David Conner. The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Revd. and Rt Hon. Justin Welby, will officiate as the couple make their marriage vows. The Archbishop is the most senior bishop of the Anglican Church, and baptised Meghan into the Church of England in March.

Their plain gold wedding rings will be created from pure Welsh gold from the Clogau St. David Gold Mine in Dolgellau, Wales, a royal tradition that began 95 years ago when Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the future Queen Mother, married the then Duke of York on April 26, 1923.

St George’s Chapel has been a venue for Royal weddings since the future King Edward VII married Princess Alexandra of Denmark in 1863. Harry’s father, Prince Charles celebrated his marriage to the former Camilla Parker-Bowles there in 2005. Other recent royal weddings at the chapel include Harry’s uncle Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones in 1999, and the Queen’s eldest grandson, Peter Phillips, and Canadian Autumn Kelly in 2008. Harry and Meghan’s wedding is the first of two royal weddings taking place in the Chapel this year, with his cousin Princess Eugenie marrying Jack Brooksbank there in October.

St George’s Chapel is located inside the walls of Windsor Castle. The castle was built by William the Conqueror at a strategic location on the River Thames following the Norman invasion of England in the 11th century.

The chapel is a “Royal Peculiar” meaning it is under the direct jurisdiction of the monarch (rather than a diocese or archdiocese), and is considered to be one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England. The Gothic style flourished in Europe during the High and Late Middle Ages (from the 5th to the 15th centuries). The magnificent fan vaulted ceiling was completed in 1528, during the reign of Henry VIII.
