Meghan Markle's travel clothes hack

BREAKING NEWS: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will invite 2600 lucky members of the public to their royal wedding

Under Saturday 19th May, you'll see Meghan and Prince Harry's name along with a bunch of hand-drawn hearts.

Kensington Palace announced that the Hot Ginger Prince and the lady from "Suits" have invited 2,640 people into the grounds of Windsor Castle "to watch the arrivals of the Bride and Groom and their wedding guests at the chapel and to watch the carriage procession as it departs".

Harry and Markle, an American actress, will marry at noon in St. George's Chapel, the 15th- century church on the grounds of Windsor Castle that has always been the backdrop of choice for royal occasions.

This, of course, is in-line with both Harry and Meghan's passion for inspiring and supporting younger generations.

Also invited are 100 students from two local schools, 610 Windsor Castle community members and 530 members of the royal household.

Palace aides have said that the prince and Ms Markle's wedding will "reflect their characters and personalities" and be a moment of "fun and joy".

Normally, at any Royal wedding, members of the public have to watch the affair at home on their sofas, or stand in huge crowds of adoring fans for a tiny glimpse of the bride and groom as they pass by.

The blueprint for the wedding is said to be Prince Edward's marriage to Sophie Rhys-Jones (now the Countess of Wessex) Their wedding in 1999 was dubbed "the people's wedding" after wedding organizers ran a ballot for hundreds of people to be invited into the grounds of the castle. Now, the Palace has released details on how members of the public can get even closer to the latest royal wedding of the decade.

The couple's guests from their wedding ceremony will enjoy a reception at St. George's Hall, Windsor on the afternoon of May 19 2018.

The carriage will then proceed along a route through the surrounding area, ending up back at Windsor Castle, along streets thronged with well-wishers.

The couple are marrying on a Saturday meaning no extra Bank Holiday for this royal wedding but the United Kingdom government has already announced plans to allow pubs to stay open later on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 May as part of the celebrations. We're betting that the upcoming Royal wedding won't be too traditional, especially as Meghan has broken royal protocol a few times in her public outings.

Since the couple revealed their engagement in November, they have made several public appearances, taking trips to Cardiff, Edinburgh, Nottingham and south London and spending a traditional Christmas with other members of the royal family including Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Rev David Connor, will conduct the wedding service in the chapel, which holds around 800 people, making it an intimate setting for the wedding.
