Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have revealed they will get married in Windsor Castle in May next year.

The couple confirmed more details of their big day after announcing their engagement on Monday, following weeks of speculation.

The weddding will take place at St George's Chapel.

In a statement, the couple named the venue, saying Queen Elizabeth II had given permission for them to use the chapel, and said the wedding would take place in May 2018.

The exact date has not yet been revealed.

Ms Markle, a Protestant, is to be baptised and confirmed into the Church of England before the wedding day.

Jason Knauf, Prince Harry's communication's secretary, said Windsor is a "very special place" for Harry and that the couple had spent time there during their 16-month romance.

He said they were delighted to be holding the wedding in the "beautiful grounds of Windsor".

Mr Knauf added that the couple were "grateful to the Queen for granting permission for the use of the Chapel".

Prince Harry and his fiancée also hope to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations and are considering how to make that happen.

The statement added: "This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters of the bride and groom.

"Prince Harry and Ms Markle are leading the planning process for all aspects of the wedding."

The bride-to-be is also set to become a British citizen, but the process could take a number of years.

The couple have also announced their first engagement together, which will take place on Friday December 1st.

They will visit Nottingham, where Prince Harry started the Full Effect programme in 2014 through The Royal Foundation.
