Royal wedding fever has firmly hit the U.K. and could soon replace Brexit as the chief British news generator.
The two will marry at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle next May, Kensington Palace said Tuesday.
“Her majesty the Queen has granted permission for the wedding to take place at the chapel,” the official statement read, adding that further details would be announced in due course.
The Royal Family — which receives a Sovereign Grant from the British taxpayer that in 2016-2017 amounted to 42.8 million pounds ($57 million) — will pay for the wedding, including the service, music, flowers and the reception.
U.S actress and Suits star Markle, a protestant, will become a British citizen and also will be baptized and confirmed into the Church of England prior to the wedding, it was announced.
Prince Harry and Markle are set to undertake their first official engagements together this Friday.
