Meghan Markle prefers not to have an extravagant wedding to Prince Harry. a source has revealed.
Pomp and pageantry is the last thing he would want,” the source said of the 33-year-old royal’s wish. “I can see him wanting to get married at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. It would stop it from turning into a total media circus and give the day a sense of privacy that Harry so badly craves.”
Despite Prince Harry’s preference, the rest of the royal family are expected to support him. Asked whether Queen Elizabeth II will go too, the source said, “Of course. No question.”
Markle, 36, and Prince Harry met in July last year in London. Kensington Palace confirmed their relationship in November.
“We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news,” she told Vanity Fair in a recent interview.
Prince Harry and Markle first stepped out officially as a couple at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto in September. Before this event, the two went on a vacation in Botswana, where Harry was said to have proposed.
Although no wedding plans have been officially announced, the two are said to be happy in their relationship.
“They’re in the best place ever,” the source said. “Their relationship has gone from strength to strength. I don’t think Meghan ever thought she would meet someone who gets her so well, who shares so many interests with her. They match on so many levels. They really can’t wait to build a future together.”
