The Kensington Palace tweeted the date that everyone has been waiting for on Friday morning, Dec. 15.
Official Wedding Day Is Confirmed
Hopefully, the wedding won't interfere with the birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child who is expected to arrive in April 2018. No matter, if the soon-to-be prince or princess decides to wait a while after his or her due date, 2018 will surely be a memorable year for the Royal family.
It was late November when Markle and Harry announced their engagement only after a year of dating. Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton also released a statement after the official announcement of the engagement was made public.
"It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together," Prince William and Duchess Kate said.
Meghan Markle To Spend Christmas With The Royal Family
The couple will reside in Nottingham Cottage as they plan their wedding. But first, they will celebrate Christmas with the Queen and the rest of the royal family.
A few days ago, the Suits star would be spending Christmas with her future in-laws, which is totally a break in tradition for the royal family. Markle will join the Queen at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk about 110 miles north of London. On Christmas Eve, the group will exchange gifts and then head to St. Mary Magdalene Church on Christmas Day.
"The family together have been a solid support and my grandparents as well have been wonderful throughout this process," Prince Harry stated.
Spending the holidays together isn't the only tradition that the couple will break. There have been speculations that the two may not opt for the traditional rich fruit cake.
The couple may go for banana cake since they both love its taste. If their plan pushes through, Markle and Harry will be the first one among the royals to have a cake made from the fruit.
What Will Meghan Wear?
What fans are dying to know is what will Markle wear for her big day. Designers such as Oscar de la Renta, Emilia Wickstead, Erdem, Caroline Castigliano and Calvin Klein have all been linked to the soon-to-be bride.
"Delphine Manivet and Christos Costarellos are faves of mine for their uniqueness and beauty," Markle said.
