The Royal Wedding 2018 - What You Need To Know

If you have lived under a rock for the last year you may not realise that there is a big royal wedding in town! Since their engagement in November, it seems like everyone has been talking about the royal wedding to be, and now the date is getting closer here is what you need to know about the royal wedding. 

When: On May 19th 2018 Prince Harry, sixth in line to the British throne, will marry American actress Meghan Markle.

Windsor Castle

Where: The marriage will take place in St Georges Chapel in Windsor Castle, about twenty miles from London, at 12 noon.  After they take their vows at Windsor Castle, at 1 p.m. they will get into a carriage for a procession through town and return to the castle along the Long Walk, the impressive tree-lined avenue.

Windsor Castle is a beautiful castle. If you want to visit admission fee is £21.20 per adult £12.30 per child, under 5's free and concessions are available. Unfortunately, admission is not available for the royal wedding due to security restrictions, only those members of the public and charities that have scored invites will be able to stand on the grounds and watch the couple as they leave St George's Chapel. Instead, why not visit after the event to see where it all happened? 

All is not lost though as those who journey to Windsor on the day will be able to watch the ceremony on big screens in the Long Walk and Alexandra Gardens. They can watch the procession along the whole route.

After the service, there will be a reception at St George's Hall for the couple and guests from the congregation.


Hampton Court Palace

If you want to have a glimpse of the happy couple why not stay close by? There is availability still at a handful of hotels near Windsor, such as the Devere Beaumont Estate at £255 for the 19th or the Royal Adelaide Hotel at £305. Or stay further afield in London where you have a choice of hotels from budget to 5-star hotels.  There will be road closures starting early in the morning on the wedding day so for those staying in London or travelling to Windsor it would be best to take a train, and to leave very early.

What else to do: 

Legoland Windsor

Why not make a weekend of your visit to the area and visit some of the attractions around such as Legoland Windsor, Thorpe Park, Syon Park Gardens and Hampton Court Palace? You may even see a wedding in Legoland if you don't get to see the royal couple. 

For a taste of the royal life:

If you want to travel in style and have limited time, why not try a chauffeured car service for a full day trip to Windsor Castle in a luxurious Mercedes S class? With a professional driver, free Wi-fi, drinks, magazines and that touch of class you can dream you are a royal for the day. 

Tell me, will you be celebrating the royal wedding?
