"Today's announcement follows earlier confirmation of the month of the wedding and its location at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle," the tweet from @KensingtonRoyal added.
Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle will marry at St. George’s Chapel at Great Britain’s Windsor Castle in May, according to The Telegraph.
The Telegraph on Tuesday reported that the the newly-engaged couple is also planning their wedding ceremony themselves.
Harry’s communications secretary on Tuesday said that Windsor is a “very special place” to the prince.
Jason Knauf added that Harry and Markle had chosen “the beautiful grounds of Windsor” for their future nuptials having spent time there during their 16-month romance.
“The couple of course want the day to be a special, celebratory moment for their friends and family,” he said.
“They also want the day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too and are currently working through ideas for how this might be achieved,” Knauf added.
“This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters of the bride and groom.”
Kensington Palace on Tuesday announced that the British royal family would pay for the wedding, including the church service, flowers, music and the reception.
Markle, a Protestant who attended a Catholic high school, will be both baptized and confirmed ready for the religious ceremony.
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.
