In the statement, the pair confirmed their service will begin at 7 a.m. (ET) at St George's Chapel in Windsor. Once the ceremony wraps around 8 a.m. (ET), royal onlookers will get the chance to glimpse the newlyweds as they take a carriage procession around Windsor Castle. The pair said they hope that the journey will allow for more people to come together around the town to enjoy their special day.
The reception will take place at St George's Hall, which will see Harry and Meghan's wedding guests attend, and later in the evening Prince Charles will host a private reception for the pair and their close circle of friends and family.
As well as all key members of the royal family, including Harry's aunt Sarah Ferguson, celebrity guests expected to attend include Serena Williams – a close friend of the bride-to-be, David Beckham – who also attended Prince William's ceremony back in 2011, and James Blunt – who first met Harry while serving in the military.
The couple are expected to set up a wedding fund for guests to donate to charity instead of bringing lavish gifts. According to the Mail Online, a source explained that Harry "doesn't want guests spending lots of time buying him extravagant presents, but he does want them to support his charity work."
Last month, it was reported that Meghan will break royal tradition by giving a speech at their wedding. The Sunday Times reported the former actress will deliver an "affectionate" toast to thank her new husband, the Queen and her friends and family. Meghan may even dare to make a couple of jokes, the report added.
