It also included the route Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will take. They will leave Windsor Castle via Castle Hill and proceed along the High Street through Windsor Town before returning to the castle along the Long Walk.
After their procession, the newlyweds will attend a reception at St. George’s Hall. Once the reception is over, they will get a short break to unwind or perhaps spend time alone together. In the evening Prince Charles will host a smaller private reception for his youngest son and new daughter-in-law.
Although some details of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding have been shared one big question is, who will be in the bridal party? As of now, the only confirmed members are Prince George and Princess Charlotte. It is rumored Prince William will serve as Harry’s best man, while Kate will likely not have a role in the bridal party. She will be looking after her children, including baby number three, which will only be a few weeks old at the time of the Royal Wedding.
