Royal wedding 2018: How old is Prince Harry? How old is fiancée Meghan Markle?

Prince Harry’s royal wedding to Suits actress Meghan Markle is one of the major news events of the year, with just weeks to go until the big day. But how old are the couple? The pair are set to marry in a much anticipated ceremony at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19.

The wedding is the first Royal Wedding since Prince William and Kate Middleton married on April 29, 2011, at Westminster Abbey in London.

While it will be the first marriage for Prince Harry, it is the second wedding for Meghan Markle, who is Harry’s senior by three years.

How old is Prince Harry? How old is fiancée Meghan Markle?

Meghan Markle, 36, was born in LA on August 4, 1981 while Prince Harry, 33, was born on September 15, 1984 at St Mary’s Hospital in London.

Meghan was originally married to producer 41-year-old Trevor Engelson, who produced many of Markle’s films including Remember Me which starred Twilight star Robert Pattinson.

The pair married in 2011 in Jamaica but it was an ill fated and brief marriage which only lasted three years, despite the couple previously dating for seven years.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had been together for around 16 months when the prince got down on one knee over a roast chicken dinner at their Nottingham Cottage home.

They met on a blind date arranged by a mutual friend in July 2016 before having two dates in London.

When will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tie the knot?

They will marry on Saturday, May 19 at St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The BBC has announced it will waive the TV licence fee for local communities.

This means street parties and other special events held to celebrate the Royal wedding can screen the ceremony live without having to buy a licence.

While the guest list remains under wraps, the chapel has a capacity of around 800 people.

The couple will exchange vows at noon before making a two mile procession through Windsor.

A reception will then be hosted by the Queen at St George’s Hall in the castle grounds before a smaller evening reception of around 200 guests hosted by Prince Charles.

While the royal couple are keeping the details of their big day close to their chests, London florist Philippa Craddock has been tasked with decorating the chapel with white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves.

The flowers will be donated to charity following the wedding.
