The countdown continues. In nearly two months Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will walk down the aisle at Windsor Castle and apparently the two want some very special people in attendance for their wedding day.
The Kensington Palace announced on Friday via Twitter that the Royal and the actress intend on inviting members of the public to the nuptial celebrations.
“Prince Harry and Ms. Markle would like their wedding day to be shaped to allow members of the public to share in the joy and the fun of the day. They have today given further details how public guests will be involved in the celebrations on May 19,” the palace began in a series of tweets.
“Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle will invite 2,640 members of the public to Windsor Castle on their wedding day to watch the arrivals of the Bride and Groom and their guests and the carriage procession as it departs from the castle. The couple has asked that 1,200 people, from all corners of the UK be selected by Lord Lieutenants, include young people who have shown strong leadership and those who have served their communities,” the tweets continued. “Also invited into the castle grounds are 200 people from charities and organizations close to Prince Harry and Ms. Markle, including those which Prince Harry serves as Patron. Other guests will include 100 pupils from two local schools, 610 Windsor Castle community members and 530 Members of The Royal Household and The Crown Estate.”
The guests, who will come from all around the United Kingdom, will be able to watch the arrival of the bride and groom and be given a prime location to witness their carriage procession after the May 19 ceremony.
There’s no word as to who will attend the wedding ceremony or if the couple has finalized their guest list. Though, we still have high hopes that former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are present to witness the nuptials.
