Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have given an update on their royal wedding plans.
The couple have now confirmed that the wedding will take place at 12pm on May 19, 2018 in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
It will be officiated by the Dean of Windsor, the Right Reverend David Conner and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, Kensington Palace confirmed today.
The royal family also revealed the route of the procession set to take place after the ceremony, when the newlyweds will emerge as husband and wife for the first time.
They will leave Windsor Castle in a carriage, and travel along High Street through the town of Windsor, before returning to the castle by the Long Walk. Windsor is about 25 miles west of central London.
"They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day," a statement from Kensington Palace said.
After the procession, the couple and guests will attend a reception at St George's Hall, before a private evening reception for friends and family hosted by Prince Charles.
It was recently rumoured that Sir Elton John may perform at the wedding, as he has apparently confirmed his attendance.
Harry and Meghan announced their engagement in November last year, having been in a relationship since summer 2016.
Meanwhile, a US TV movie about their relationship is on the way, and two actors have been hired to portray them on screen.
