It has been announced that the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be taking place in May 2018 at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
Before the wedding can take place, Meghan Markle will be baptised and confirmed at some point before the big day.
Leading up to the news that the two were engaged, speculation was risen about if being divorced or attending a Catholic school in her youth would affect where Prince Harry and Meghan could marry.
When Prince Charles married the then, Camilla Parker-Bowles in 2005, the current Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, agreed the arrangements were “consistent with Church of England guidelines concerning remarriage.”
The Church of England rules states that previously married people must answer questions on “past hurts” to ensure mistakes have been healed.
The Palace confirmed that Meghan is currently Protestant, despite attending Catholic school and it will not cause any issues with her converting.
When the happy news came in on Monday, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said he was “absolutely delighted.”
“I have met Prince Harry on a number of occasions and have always been struck by his commitment and passion for his charities, and his immense love for his family,” read a statement from his office.
On their visit, Harry and Meghan will focus on issues close to their hearts including raising awareness of issues including HIV/AIDS and youth crime
For their first stop of the day, the couple will visit Nottingham Contemporary which will be hosting a Terrence Higgins Trust World AIDS Day charity fair where the walkabout will take place before they enter the venue.
