The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle taking place tomorrow at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle in England… Harry, of course, the second son of Charles, Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales… Meghan, an American actress best known for her role in the American legal-drama television series, “Suits”… in a relationship since June, 2016. .. November 27th, it was announced they would marry this spring.
Harry got the Queen’s permission to marry under the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, as the monarch can approve or disapprove marriages of the first six persons in the line of succession. After the engagement, Markle began the years-long process of becoming a British citizen. She will retain her U.S. citizenship during the process, but Kensington Palace have indicated that the decision on whether she will retain dual nationality has not yet been made.
Experts expect the wedding to cost around £500,000. Holding the royal wedding on a weekend is a break with the royal tradition of having weddings on a weekday. The first reception, for those attending the ceremony, will be hosted by the Queen in St. George’s Hall after the carriage procession. A second reception at Frogmore House, for family and close friends and hosted by the Prince of Wales, will occur later in the day. And, no, I didn’t get invited either.
