Cheers your Highness: Pub opening hours to be extended for royal wedding

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle

The couple will marry at noon on the Saturday at St George's Chapel in Windsor.

It has been reported by the Sunday Times her baptism and confirmation will be held at Kensington Palace by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justice Welby, however a date is yet to be confirmed. Markle's parents are expected at the ceremony.

Both Ms Markle's mother, Doria Ragland and father, Thomas Markle, are expected to travel to London to attend the service.

The woman who is rumoured to have set the couple up, Violet von Westenholz - one of Harry's close childhood friends - is also presumed to be at the hen.

The measure - set to give a £10m boost to the industry - has previously been given the go-ahead for the Queen's 90th birthday in 2016, the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton and the World Cup in 2014.

However, Miss Markle has said she well past painting the town red, she told the Mirror: 'The thought of running around a city trying to get into clubs and wearing headbands of the phallic persuasion didn't seem very "on brand" for us'. The baptism will see Meghan - who was raised Protestant - join the Church of England. "We went through that as anyone would who will officiate at a wedding where someone has been separated and a partner is still living".

The Duchess of Cambridge is seven months pregnant and after a week of royal engagements is believed to need the rest.

BRITISH pubs will be allowed to open late for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, described today as "a day of national celebration" by Home Secretary Amber Rudd.

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

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be married on May 19.

About 1,200 of those invited will be members of the general public. Harry and Markle invited 200 people to represent charities and other organizations they support.
