Ever since Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle announced their engagement last month, the excitement in the air has been palpable.

Harry's elder brother, Prince William will most definitely be in attendance along with wife Kate Middleton, however, he will reportedly have to let go of the FA Cup Final, which happens to be one of the biggest events in English football.

Meghan and Harry will spend their first Christmas as an engaged couple with Queen Elizabeth and other members of Britain's royal family at the Sandringham royal estate.

The couple are living in Harry's cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace with Markle's beagle Guy. Needless to say, Markle's parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, will also be present.

Kensington Palace announced the news on its official Twitter account on Friday (15.12.17) with the statement: "His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle will marry on 19th May 2018".

The royal family is expected to pay for the wedding, the church service, the music, the flowers and the reception.

Royal weddings usually take place on a weekday.

A royal wedding has been anticipated since the couple made their first appearance together in September at the Invictus Games, the prince's sporting tournament for injured or sick veterans.

"They will be making sure it reflects who they are as a couple", he said.

Ms Markle, a protestant, will be baptised and confirmed before the wedding, the palace added. "It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together".

The pair confirmed their engagement on 27 November after Prince Harry proposed to the Suits actress earlier in the month.

Harry and Ms Markle will have a church wedding, with the Archbishop of Canterbury saying they had "chosen to make their vows before God".
