The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is due to take place on 19 May 2018 at Windsor Castle in England. The groom, Prince Harry, is a member of the British royal family; the bride, Meghan Markle, is an American actress.
Markle will be the second American and the first person of mixed race heritage to marry into the British royal family. The engagement announcement prompted much comment about the possible social significance of Meghan Markle becoming a proudly mixed-race royal.
Since Harry was fifth in the line of succession to the British throne at the time of his engagement, he obtained the Queen’s permission to marry under the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, which allows the monarch to approve or disapprove marriages of the first six persons in the line of succession.The Queen’s consent was declared to the Privy Council of the United Kingdom on 14 March 2018.
