Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding is set to be a truly spectacular affair. The couple will marry at St George's Chapel, the place of worship at Windsor Castle, on Saturday 19 May. The ceremony will take place at noon, conducted by The Rt Revd, David Conner and officiated by The Most Revd. and Rt Hon. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury. A new video and photos show the stunning interior of the chapel, which was built in 1475 and took 53 years to complete.
The chapel has a capacity of around 800 guests, and Harry and Meghan are expected to fill every seat with their family and friends, plus other guests including government officials and dignitaries. The below photos show the potential seating plan as well as the altar where Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, will say "I do".

After the religious ceremony, well wishers will be able to catch the first glimpse of Harry and Meghan as they exit the chapel and pose on the steps. The newlyweds will then undertake a carriage procession from St George's Chapel, travelling down Castle Hill and processing along the High Street and through Windsor Town, returning to Windsor Castle along the Long Walk. The pair said they hope that the journey will allow for more people to come together around the town to enjoy their special day.

The first reception will be held in the splendour of St George's Hall, where Harry and Meghan will be able to toast their union with all 800 guests. Later that evening, Prince Charles will host a more intimate, private reception for the newlyweds and their close family and friends.

It's no wonder that Harry and Meghan have chosen to marry at St George's Chapel. Harry was christened there in 1984, and the venue has hosted many a royal wedding before. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall had a post-wedding ceremony service of prayer and dedication there in 2005, while the Queen's eldest grandchild, Peter Phillips, married his bride Autumn Kelly there in 2008. Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie is also due to wed her fiancé Jack Brooksbank at St George's in mid-October.
