Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding will be in May at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the palace announced on Tuesday.

The latest arrangements were unveiled at a special briefing at Buckingham Palace just one day after Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, shared the news of their engagement.

During the briefing, the couple’s Kensington Palace spokesman said the soon-to-be newlyweds are “extremely grateful following the warm public response” to their engagement.

“Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Miss Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year,” said the spokesman. “They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”

The day will be “shaped so that members of the public” feel like a part of it, he added. “This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy and reflect the characters” of both the bride and groom.

The spokesman added that the royal family will foot the bill for the key parts of the wedding tab, including the church service, flowers, decorations and the reception.

Meghan, the rep added, will be baptized and confirmed in the Church of England prior to the wedding.

In a wide-ranging BBC interview on Monday, the couple revealed how Harry popped the question during a “cozy” night as they cooked roast chicken at their new London home, Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

The wedding will take place during an exciting time for the royal family — Harry’s brother, Prince William, and sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, are expecting their third child in April.
