Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding has constantly been in the news since the couple announced their engagement. As the royal wedding is approaching, and invites are being sent out, the couple has invited 2,640 commoners into the grounds of the Windsor Castle to be a part of the wedding.
According to a spokesperson, the British Royal Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle “want their wedding day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations to.”
The group will be able to witness the arrival and departure of the royal couple at the St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. Windsor Castle, located in West London, is one of the Queen Elizabeth’s residences.
The invitees include 1,200 people from across Britain, belonging to a wide range of backgrounds and ages. The list also includes young people “who have shown strong leadership and served their communities.”
Almost 200 people associated with various organisations and charities that the couple is associated with. 100 students from local schools, around 610 members of the castle community and the 530 royal crown staff will also be present at the Windsor Castle grounds to witness the wedding on May 19.
Harry and Meghan will be taking a short carriage ride through the town of Windsor, as announced, to “share their celebrations with the public”.
There will be a formal reception following the wedding ceremony, at St George’s Hall, Windsor Castle. Later in the evening, Prince Charles will host a private party.
