St George's Chapel holds between 800 and 1000 people - large enough for a major wedding, but less formal that Westminster Abby where Harry's brother Prince William Wednesday Kate Middleton. or St Paul's Cathedral, where Harry's parents Prince Charles and Diana Spencer were married. "Further details about the wedding will be announced in due course".

Kensington Palace said that Windsor Castle, a royal residence west of London, had become "a special place" for the couple. At least three services take place there every day, and all are open to the public.

Prince Harry and Ms Markle will start their visit at the National Justice Museum, followed by a walkabout, considered a Royal rite of passage for the new family member, and then a visit to Nottingham Contemporary. The 15th-century chapel is as historic but more intimate than Westminster Abbey, where Harry's older brother William married Kate Middleton in 2011.

Markle's divorced status would once have barred her from marrying the prince in church.

However, it is on the Windsor Castle estate, and will be more hard for members of the public to access.

St George's Chapel. Formal but not too formal. According to NBC News, Harry's uncle, Prince Edward, married Sophie Rhys-Jones there in 1999, and his cousin, Peter Phillips, married Autumn Kelly at the chapel in 2008. Harry's father Prince Charles, who is heir to the British throne, married Camilla in a low-key civil ceremony in 2005 because both bride and groom were divorced. St. George's Chapel seats 800 while Westminster Abbey can fit a whopping 2,000 people.

"They will be making sure it reflects who they are as a couple", he said. Either way, the tone seems like it will be much different from William and Kate's pomp and circumstance.

Prince Harry and his fiancee also hope to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations and are considering how to make that happen.
