Details about Prince Harry [VIDEO] and actress #Meghan Markle's upcoming wedding are coming out faster than originally expected. The announcement came out on Monday, November 27 that they got engaged earlier this month. The announcement revealed that they would get married in the spring of 2018, but the exact day would be revealed later.

A special meeting took place at Buckingham Palace and the very next day on Tuesday, November 28, Kensington Palace announced that the wedding will take place in May. This will be one month after Prince William and Duchess Kate would have welcomed their third child that is due in April.

St. George's Chapel

After the special meeting, a spokesman for the couple said #Prince Harry and Meghan are extremely grateful for the warm public response to their engagement.

The spokesman also shared that the venue for the wedding will be different from where Prince William and Kate Middleton got married on April 29, 2011. They got married at Westminster Abbey in London, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get married at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle because it is a very special place for Prince Harry. This venue is much smaller and more intimate than Westminister Abbey. Other royals have gotten married at St. George's Chapel.

During the last 16 months, the 33-year-old fifth in line to the throne of England and his actress girlfriend have attended services at St. George's Chapel. That's where they want to begin their married lives. Queen Elizabeth has authorized the royal family to pick up the tab for the church service, decorations, and the reception.

Also, the royal family is allowing the couple to plan their own wedding because the couple wants it to be a fun time for everyone who will witness it. The wedding will be televised just as Prince William's wedding was televised and seen by millions around the world.

Meghan's baptism

Prior to getting married in St. George's Chapel in May, the 36-year-old bride to be must get baptized and confirmed. This could be done at any time as long as it is done before the wedding date. As of now, she is identified as a Protestant. She will also become a British citizen, according to The Telegraph.

Even before Meghan's baptism, confirmation, wedding, and becoming a citizen, the newly engaged couple will perform their first duty together this coming Friday.

They will speak at a charity event where they will meet representatives of organizations who support those living with HIV/AIDS.
