Inside the beautiful chapel where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take their vows
Here are some important facts about the famous wedding venue of the soon-to-be royal couple.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to take their wedding vow inside St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. Inquisitr presented some important details on this historical venue.
The online source informed that St. George's chapel was built more than 500 years ago and has been the place that has hosted several royal weddings, burials, and baptisms ever since its inception.
This beautiful piece of architecture has stunning designs but can only hold around 8,00 people, which suggests that Harry and Markle's wedding is going to be 'low-key.'
Back in 1863, Queen Alexandra married King Edward VII in this very chapel, which is recorded as the first ever wedding to have taken place in St. George's Chapel.
Over the years, it has also seen the weddings of Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones in 1999 and Prince Charles' wedding with Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005.
The chapel holds special places in the hearts of Prince Harry and Markle, the source further hinted. In 2017, the couple spent a lot of their time in the chapel.
An insider for the online source revealed that the couple is delighted that they are going to begin their married life from the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle.
Apart from celebratory occasions, St. George's Chapel has also hosted a number of important burials of the royals including King Henry VIII, King Edward IV, King Edward VII, King George III, King George IV, King William IV, and King George V.
Even Queen Elizabeth is planning to rest on this ground after she passes away, the source further revealed.
Meanwhile, the online source also informed that following their wedding, Prince Harry and Markle are expected to go on a carriage ride around the town, before finally ending their journey back at the Windsor Castle.
