Harry and Meghan name the date — and you’re not getting an extra bank holiday by Anna Thomson Published

Kensington Palace announced via Twitter on Friday that the couple will be married on May 19, 2018.

The pair announced their engagement late last month, and the location of the wedding was confirmed shortly afterwards.

According to Vanity Fair, Harry was typically upbeat when it came to discussing the special treatment that Markle has received, both from his famous grandma the Queen and from her beloved corgis.

This is an exciting time for both Markle and her fiancé, Prince Harry, as they are set to Wednesday on May 19, 2018.

The actor Idris Elba, speaking before a Buckingham Palace dinner with the Prince of Wales to celebrate the work of The Prince's Trust, said Ms Markle would be a "beacon" and a role model as a member of the Royal family.

And sure, it may not be a big deal that a soccer match is happening the same day, except, as the Daily Mail noted, Harry's brother, Prince William, is actually the FA Cup president and is typically on hand to present the trophy.

The BBC reports the Royal Family will pay for the wedding, including the service, music, flowers and reception.

Windsor Castle - the largest inhabited castle in the world - is located 20 miles west of London and is one of Queen Elizabeth II's residences where she spends about a month around Easter.
