Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have set a date.

Kensington Palace announced on Friday that the pair will marry on Saturday, May 19, next year at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, Berkshire.

St George’s Chapel has been the site of many royal weddings throughout history, including, most recently, Harry’s cousin Peter Phillips’ marriage to Autumn Kelly in 2008.

It follows Prince Harry and Markle announcing their engagement in November.

Many world leaders, politicians, and celebrities were amongst the well-wishers to congratulate the happy couple at the time of the announcement, including Prime Minister Theresa May and even 10 Downing Street’s cat, Larry.
