Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding will be held on Saturday 19 May 2018, Kensington Palace has announced.
The pair confirmed their engagement in November and said the service would be at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
The date breaks with tradition as royal weddings usually take place on a weekday – the Queen wed on a Thursday and the Duke of Cambridge on a Friday.
The wedding will be on the same day as the FA Cup Final, which Prince William normally attends as FA president.
The time of the match has yet to be confirmed, but in recent years it has taken place at 17:30 GMT.
His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle will marry on 19th May 2018.
