Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wedding MAP: Where to see newly-wed royals in Windsor
MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry will see thousands of people flock to Windsor to celebrate the royal couple as they marry in St George’s Chapel this May. Here is a map of where can you see the newly-weds during the procession after the ceremony.
Prince Harry proposed to the former Suits star during a cosy night in over a roast chicken dinner after a 16-month whirlwind romance.
They announced their engagement last November and will have the eyes of the world on them on May 19 when they tie the knot at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
The couple said they are “hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received since announcing their engagement”.
The marriage ceremony will begin at 12pm at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on May 19, Kensington Palace announced.
Harry and Meghan Markle have gone against tradition by choosing a Saturday, as royal weddings usually take place on a weekday.
The Rt Rev David Conner, Dean of Windsor, will conduct the service at the Castle’s 15th Century chapel and the Archbishop of Canterbury will officiate as the couple make their vows.
The service is expected to be televised, although details as to how you can watch the royal wedding 2018 have not yet been released.
But for those die-hard royal fans, they will be able to catch a glimpse of the royals during a procession through the streets of Windsor after the couple have officially tied the knot.

Beginning at 1pm, the route will include Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road, Long Walk and finally Windsor Castle.

After the service, there will be a reception at St George’s Hall for the couple and guests from the congregation.
Harry and Ms Markle will join their guests at the reception when they return from the carriage procession.
Later that evening, the Prince of Wales will give a private evening reception for the couple and their close friends and family.
However, while some will be lining the route to express their love and support for the royal couple this may not be the case for everyone.
The Windsor wedding is, in fact, facing a hard-left demonstration with anti-monarchy protestors vowing to dress up as “threadbare” homeless people on the day of the celebration.
The protests, which have been organised on Facebook, have been set up in response to comments from a council boss who suggested police remove rough sleepers from the town for the big day.
Simon Dudley, Windsor Council’s Tory leader, controversially called on police to clear the town as he spoke of “an epidemic of rough sleeping and vagrancy” – although later insisted his comments had been aimed only at “commercial” beggars.
Mr Dudley’s remarks were branded “abhorrent” by local campaigners after he said there was “an epidemic of rough sleeping and vagrancy in Windsor” and called the police to focus on “dealing with this before the Royal Wedding”.
