"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".

Kensington Palace said that Windsor Castle, a royal residence west of London, had become "a special place" for the couple. "Further details about the wedding will be announced in due course".

In Meghan Markle's first joint interview with her fiancé, Prince Harry, the "Suits" actress announced that she's leaving acting.

The chapel is much smaller than Westminster Abbey, where Harry's brother, Prince William, married Kate Middleton in 2011 and Prince Charles married Princess Diana, Harry and William's mother, in 1981. According to NBC News, Harry's uncle, Prince Edward, married Sophie Rhys-Jones there in 1999, and his cousin, Peter Phillips, married Autumn Kelly at the chapel in 2008.

The last wedding held there was the union of Harry's father and Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005, where they received a blessing from The Archbishop of Canterbury.

Windsor Castle, which is about an hour and a half away from London, has less than half the capacity than the abbey-800, compared to 2,000-and is a "very special place" for the couple, who "regularly spent time there over the previous year and a half" and are "grateful to The Queen for granting permission for the use of the Chapel", according to Prince Harry's spokesperson. Harry and Meghan plan on making the ceremony reflect their personalities and they're determining a way to involve the public in some way, their spokesman revealed.

Prince Harry and his fiancee also hope to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations and are considering how to make that happen.
