SATURDAY – 5/19/18
Prince Harry and American Meghan Markle will be officially wedded today, with Markle joining the British monarchy, and the first time for someone who is half black to do so, as Markle’s mother is African American. The service will start at 7 in the morning Eastern Standard Time, and 12 in the noon in England.
Attending the service, which will be held at the Windsor Chapel, 25 miles outside of London, will be both Markle and Harry’s parents, the Queen of England, and despite skepticism that he won’t attend due to poor health, the King of England will attend the hour long service as well.
Following the wedding service, there will be a parade showcasing the newly wed Markle and Harry, followed by a service to celebrate the wedding. The last royal wedding was in 2011, where Prince William, second in line to the throne, married Catherine Elizabeth Middleton at Westminster Abbey.
