The next few months promise to be busy ones for Prince Harry and his bride-to-be, Meghan Markle! It has been confirmed that the couple will tie the knot at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, this coming May. At a briefing held at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday (Nov 28) afternoon - Harry's communications secretary Jason Knauf confirmed that the former Suits actress will be joining Harry on their first public engagement together in Nottingham on Friday. However, Meghan will make sure she spends the next couple of months with her friends and family ahead of the big day, and she will also do some travelling. Many are still speculating whether the American star will join the royals at Christmas.
