All the timings and schedules for the Royal wedding
The exact timings and schedule of the biggest wedding of the year have finally been revealed. It's going to be a busy day for the soon-to-be newlyweds.
The Royal wedding is just days away. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been preparing for their most special day since the moment they announced their engagement in November 2017.
An itinerary has been laid out for the avid royal fans to stay updated on the big day.
On the day of the wedding, May 19, 2018, the roads at Windsor will be closed at 6 a.m.
At 9 a.m., the guests will start to arrive. Those members of the public who have been given the chance to watch the wedding will be arriving.
As for the guests who will be sitting inside the chapel, they will be welcomed at around 9:30. They will be arriving at the Round Tower via coach and will pass by the South Door to get inside St. George’s Chapel.
By 11:20 a.m., the Royals will be expected to arrive. The Queen will be the last one to enter the chapel as she is the head of the monarchy.
Prince Harry and his best man, Prince William, will step inside the chapel by 11:45. It will likely be the same as when the two siblings arrived together during Prince William’s wedding in Westminster Abbey in 2011.
Ten minutes after, Markle is set to arrive with her mother, Doria. At noon, the couple will finally be exchanging their vows.
After the wedding ceremony ends at around 1 p.m., the couple will travel around Windsor in the Ascot Landau carriage. In case of rain, Prince Harry and Markle will be riding the Scottish State Coach.
The procession is expected to end after thirty minutes. Following that, the royal couple will take part in an afternoon wedding reception at St. George’s Hall, which will be hosted by the Queen.
Around 4 p.m., the afternoon reception will end. This will give the newlyweds some time to rest and just be with each other.
In the evening, there will be an intimate wedding reception where only 200 out of the 600 guests will be present, consisting of the couple’s close friends and family.
The evening reception will take place at Frogmore House and will be hosted by Prince Charles.
