St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry himself was christened, has become a “very special place” for the newly-engaged couple. St. George’s Chapel is famous for holding the wedding ceremony of Harry’s father, Prince Charles, and the Duchess of Cornwall in 2005.
It is a resting place for many of the late monarchs and members of royal family. As Prince Harry was christened in this Chapel, it has a personal meaning to him.
And the rules of the Church of England clearly state that he can get married there. There were speculations that Prince Harry would prefer to get married in St. Paul's Cathedral, where his father married Princess Diana in 1981, but they didn't prove true.
The wedding plans
Harry and Meghan have been extremely excited about the “warm response” to the news of their engagement, so they would like the public to feel involved in the celebrations.

It has been reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle themselves are going to plan their wedding, trying to make it a ceremony that “reflects the characters of the bride and groom”.

The wedding itself, including the church service, flowers, music, decorations, and reception, will be paid for by the royal family. The cost of this, no doubt, beautiful ceremony is what we are yet to find out, but in the meantime, please, watch the video, showing some of the most luxurious and expensive celebrity weddings.
Here are some of the most popular Twitter responses to the announcement.
So, if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding takes place in May, Kate will have given birth just a few weeks beforehand. I'd feel for her if she already hadn't posed for photos (looking amazing) just HOURS after delivering a baby. Twice. https://t.co/mY7JjuKxe1

Before the royal wedding ceremony, there is still a lot to decide and do. The public is still waiting for Kensington Palace to set the exact date, announce the guest list, as well as the best man and the bridesmaids.
In today's gospel Jesus says: "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind’. = "You shall love your neighbor as yourself’. . . . What stuck with me it's the emphasis on that that only through the first, we are able to do the second and vice versa. Only with our surrender to God's love are we able to truly love ourselves and those around us. And we cannot claim to love our neighbour or ourselves if we do not accept God's love through which only are we able to love freely, without selfishness. As my brother said it a few days ago: "The only true love is love for the Truth. Without truth there can't be true love."
And the most important question which sets most British women’s hearts racing: who is going to design Meghan’s dress?
While we are waiting for all the questions to be answered, let’s simply be happy for Harry and Meghan who have so many pleasant chores on their to-do list.
