Ending months of speculation, Britain's Prince Harry and Hollywood starlet Meghan Markle's wedding date and venue has finally been announced. Harry is the younger son of Prince Charles, and fifth in line to the British Crown -- after his father, older brother William, and nephew and niece, George and Charlotte -- and a favorite among the public as well a press of his country.
Rumors of his romance with Meghan had surfaced long before the couple officially confirmed their relationship, with news agencies around the globe keeping a close eye on the young Royal and his matrimonial plans.

With Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II being the longest-lived and longest-reigning British monarch as well as the world's longest-reigning queen regnant and female head of state, the oldest and longest-reigning current monarch, and the oldest and longest-serving current head of state, the British Royal Family is pre-eminent among their counterparts from other countries and has a fan following in all corners of the globe.

Kensington Palace, which is currently the official London residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke and Duchess of Kent, and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, issued a statement, revealing details about the wedding. This announcement follows the news of Harry and Meghan's recent engagement, which was announced by the office of Charles, Prince of Wales.

The statement by Kensington Palace reads, "The marriage of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle will take place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle in May, 2018. Her Majesty The Queen has granted permission for the wedding to take place at the Chapel. The Royal Family will pay for the wedding.
