Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are giving the public a present to celebrate their wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to marry at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018, in the year’s most talked-about nuptials.

And if like us, you’re eagerly awaiting every last detail of the upcoming event, this is where you’ll find everything we know so far.

The big news this week? While we won’t be getting a day off in celebration of the wedding (*sigh*), the government are giving us another present to honour the royal nuptials.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd has announced that pubs across the UK will have their licensing hours extended during the weekend of the wedding so we can all raise a glass (or five) to the happy couple.

“Visitors see the Great British pub as a cultural icon, almost as much as the Royal Family,” she said.

It’s good timing because May 19 also coincides with the FA Cup Final and Scottish Cup Final, so get your party hat on.

It was also recently announced that over 2,600 members of the public are in with a chance at attending the biggest wedding of the year – could it be you?

The 2,640 people will include ‘people who have served their communities’ and will be chosen by the Queen’s representatives from all over the UK.

There will also be a selection of people from the charities and organisations that the royal couple support. Isn’t that sweet?

As well as this, 100 pupils from two local schools will be in attendance, as well as 610 Windsor Castle community members and 530 members of the Royal Household. The selection process starts today, so if you are on the list, you’ll know about it soon enough.

That’s one heck of a party, no? Especially if the recent reveal from Mel B about the entertainment is anything to go off.
