Wedding bells are ringing again in London as fifth in line to the throne, Prince Harry, will be marrying American actress Meghan Markle.
The couple has been dating since the summer of 2016 after being set up on a blind date by a mutual friend. The engagement took place earlier this month but was announced to the public on Monday, November 27th.
Meghan Markle has starred in the show Suits, as well as films such as Horrible Bosses and Remember Me. Not only is Markle an actress, she also has her own lifestyle brand, The Tig, and the Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada. She has also been an activist for gender equality with the United Nations.
When talking to London residents, most seemed to be thrilled with the engagement.
“I am very, very excited because it shows that we are headed to a modern society where you can pick your choice of wife from anywhere in the world,” says Abraham Fatorma.
The marriage ceremony will take place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May of 2018. This Chapel will only seat 800 people, as Westminster Abbey seated 2,000 for William and Kate’s wedding.
Until the date the two will reside in Nottinghill Cottage at Kensington Palace.
