Thanks very much, Melissa McCarthy.
This is a big deal! There’s another royal wedding on the horizon. We have to hype it up as much as possible.
So without further ado, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot on…
May 19, 2018!!! Kensington Palace announced the date on Friday morning via Twitter.
In case you’re wondering, May 19 is a Saturday. And yes, it’s less than a year after the proposal, which means they must be planning like crazy. It’s clear that these two are beyond ready to get hitched.
The choice of St. George's Chapel for the wedding is also significant for a couple reasons.
Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, told BBC Radio 4’s Today program that the couple is serious about having a religious ceremony. In addition to the reputation and the prestige of the place, they were also “reportedly drawn to the chapel because it’s a holy and sacred place,” according to HuffPost.
It's been a whole six years since the last royal wedding, if you can believe it.
When Prince William and Duchess Kate got married in 2011, it was truly a worldwide event. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding promises to be the same.
This couple is a powerhouse pair, and we can't wait to watch them tie the knot in what is sure to be an elegant, fairy-tale wedding.
Markle revealed that she does plan to give up acting to focus on fulfilling her royal duties once she’s married. But she’s been such a strong activist throughout the years that joining the royal family will allow her to pursue those causes even further.
“I think what’s been really exciting — as we talk about this as the transition out of my career — is that the causes that have been very important to me, I can focus even more energy on,” she told the BBC. “In these beginning few months and now being boots on the ground in the U.K., I’m excited to really get to know more about the different communities here and smaller organizations that are working on the same causes that I’ve always been passionate about.”
No doubt they’re (and we’re all) excited to get to know you better too, Meghan! Here’s to fabulous royal weddings and a lifetime of happiness for this truly awesome couple.
