The actress – an American who was raised in California – also intends on becoming a British citizen.

Harry is fifth-in-line to Great Britain’s throne, and Markle is expected to become a duchess upon marrying him.

St. George’s Chapel is more than 500 years old and has been a traditional venue for royal weddings since 1863.

The future King Edward VII married Princess Alexandra of Denmark there that year, setting a precedent for future royal weddings.

Prince Harry’s uncle – Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex – more recently married Sophie Rhys-Jones at St. George’s in 1999, making her the Countess of Wessex.

Harry and Markle on Monday announced their engagement, confirming months of speculation that the couple would ultimately tie the knot together.
