Prince Harry and Meghan announced their engagement on Monday
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in May. The news was announced at a press briefing held at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday afternoon, and Harry's communication's secretary Jason Knauf described Windsor Castle as a "very special place" for Harry. The Chapel is located in the Lower Ward of Windsor Castle, and has a capacity for 800 guests - offering them more privacy on their special day. The couple spoke about their relationship in their first TV interview since their engagement, and Harry revealed how he proposed, saying: "It happened a few weeks ago, earlier this month, here at our cottage; just a standard typical night for us," to which Meghan interjected: "Just a cosy night, it was - what we were doing just roasting chicken… and it just - just an amazing surprise, it was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee."
