It is finally May and no, we haven’t been waiting for the flowers that April showers bring. It’s the month of the royal wedding! HRH Prince Henry of Wales is set to marry his fiance, Meghan Markle. For years, we’ve all watched Prince Harry become the honorable man that he is, but we’ve all wondered if he’d ever settle down like his older brother, Prince William.
In 2016, Prince Harry began a very low-profile relationship with actress Meghan Markle and they managed to not be photographed together during that time in their relationship. In late 2016, Kensington Palace announced that Harry was in a relationship and had been for a few months.
It wasn’t until September 2017 that the couple made their first public appearance together, at the Invictus Games. Around that time, Meghan Markle was interviewed by Vanity Fair and she opened up about her relationship with Prince Harry.
After the interview, rumors began to swirl that engagement news would soon follow. Sure enough, Kensington Palace confirmed in November 2017 that Prince Harry had proposed to Meghan Markle in the privacy of their own home earlier that month.
Now, here we are, counting down the days until their wedding. The date has been set, for May 19, 2018, and the world cannot wait.
The date is perfect too, as there will be no conflicts for the family, as Prince Harry’s older brother just welcomed his third child, Prince Louis Arthur Charles, with his wife, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, over a week ago. So, the newest prince will not steal the thunder from his uncle!
If you do not have the ability to go to watch the wedding at St. George’s Chapel, or from the streets of Windsor to Windsor Castle for the procession, don’t fret. There is a way to watch this royal wedding, no matter where you are in the world!
Tonight Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle attended a reception to celebrate female empowerment, which is being hosted by the Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson. This event marks the launch of 'Platform for Girls Education', a campaign designed to encourage all Commonwealth countries to commit to providing 12 years of quality education for all girls. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle met guests from organisations who are supporting the aim to provide quality education to girls across the Commonwealth. #CHOGM2018 📸PA
