More details from #RoyalWedding2018.

In the wake of the royal engagement announcement Monday morning, all eyes have been on Prince Harry and his betrothed, Hollywood actress/humanitarian Meghan Markle. On Tuesday, more details about the couple's 2018 nuptials were revealed. 

The official Kensington Palace Twitter account announced that the wedding will take place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, in May of 2018, adding in the statement that the venue has been cleared with the Queen (phew) and that the Royal Family will be footing the bill for the ceremony. 

Though it's not the Westminster Abbey, where Prince William was wed to Kate Middleton, or St. Paul's, where Prince Charles tied the knot with Princess Diana, St. George's holds a special place in the Royal Fam's heart. William and Kate regularly attend Easter Sunday services at the chapel, which is about 25 miles outside of London, and it's also the official chapel of the Order of the Garter. Fun fact: This is also the planned burial site for the Queen, according to the chapel's Wikipedia page.

The most important detail — Markle's dress, of course — is still under (both literal and metaphorical) wraps. The good news is that the couple is moving swiftly through the engagement, meaning we only have to wait about six months to see the style-icon-in-waiting's look. Let the countdown begin.
