Prince Harry, Meghan Markle set royal wedding date

Harry and Meghan name the date — and you’re not getting an extra bank holiday			
   by Anna Thomson 

The Prince and Markle announced their engagement at the end of November.

It comes after an earlier announcement that the wedding will happen at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be Wednesday on May 19, 2018, at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, Kensington Palace announced on Friday.

The couple have chosen to marry in Windsor, west of London, because it is "a special place for them".

Markle is planning to get baptised in the Church of England ahead of her marriage and will apply for British citizenship, as well as giving up her global charity campaigning. The two are set to get married at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

May 19 is the anniversary of a less happy royal occasion - on that day 1536, Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII and mother of Elizabeth I, was executed on Tower Green for adultery.

The Royal family are paying for the wedding, including the church service, the music, the flowers and the reception.

The wedding date presents a potential conflict for Prince William, however.

Prince William attended this year's match and presented a trophy to the victor, Arsenal.

19 May is a Saturday, and, crucially, the day of the FA Cup Final which Prince William usually attends in his role of FA President.
