Just a few short weeks ago, the world learned that Prince Harry would soon be off the market as he had proposed to his American girlfriend, actress Meghan Markle.

Ms Markle, 36, who attended a Catholic school as a child but identifies as a Protestant, will be baptised and confirmed into the Church of England before the wedding.

This is an exciting time for both Markle and her fiancé, Prince Harry, as they are set to Wednesday on May 19, 2018. "They are delighted that the lovely grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple". The two are set to get married at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Within the chapel are the tombs of ten sovereigns, including Henry VIII and his third wife Jane Seymour, and Charles I.

That being said, Meghan was allowed to spend Christmas with her family this year, which is something Kate Middleton was not able to do during her engagement to Prince William.

In a potentially slightly awkward turn events, the wedding falls on the same day as the FA Cup final, a major event in English football.

William is the president of the Football Association - the group in charge of English football - and he normally goes to the match and awards the trophy to the winning side.
