I prefer Westminster Abbey as a venue. It is way older than St Paul's Cathedral and "more English". The architecture of St Paul's could not have mismatched in any Italian city.

Harry is popular and a senior Royal. When Charles comes to the throne he will be a King's son and fourth in line. He'll be the King's only other son besides William, unlike the Queen who had four children. When William comes to the throne, until George produces a child Harry will be third in line.

There are several in this thread who would like hole in the corner sort of nuptials for Harry, no fuss of course because no, he's not important enough, and no TV coverage of the ceremony for the same reason. Won't be happening. The wedding will be televised, the Abbey or St George's the likely venue, and the crowds will come out.

who on earth is looking for "hole and corner nuptials" for harry? yes of course he is the future Kings second son. Of course when he marries he'l be married in a reasonably big ceremony, probably at Westminster abbey. much the same as P Andrew was.
But he's nto as important as Charles or WIlliam.. that's a fact. He is extremely unlikely to get near the throne. Probably when Charles is king, George or Charlotte will be married during his reign and Harry will slide further down. he's not goig to be King and his marriage ceremony will reflect that lack of importance.
Anyway I thnk it is moot since I don't believe that Harry will marry for several more years. Maybe when h's 40...

If Harry and Megan get engaged, could they even marry in a church? I thought the CoE didnt marry divorced people. That's why Charles and Camilla had to have a civil marriage right?

Meghan apparently never had a Church sanctified wedding so her situation might be similar to that of Letizia Ortiz when she married Felipe of Spain.

Since Letizia had only a civil marriage which was never recognized as valid and binding by the Roman Catholic Church, she was able to marry Felipe.

Unless a clergyman or rabbi presided at Meghan's Jamaican wedding, the CoE might take the same view, but I am not sure.

Hm true...I'm not sure that's how it works in the Church of England though.

So that means they can't get married at St George's Chapel or Westminster Abbey, I suppose.

It's up to individual ministers to sign off. They could still be married in a church

Thanks for the heads up Rudolph, I had no idea! Is this a change in policy or has it always been so?

Isabella II and Francis, Duke of Cádiz were married at the Palacio Real in Madrid



Alfonso XII married his 1st wife Maria de la Mercedes d'Orléans at the Basilica of Atocha and following her death he married Maria Christina of Austria also at the Basilica of Atocha in Madrid.

Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg were married at the Royal Monastery of San Jerónimo in Madrid.

My understanding is even Charles/Camilla could of married in the Church but they chose not to due to the situation. So it must not be a new policy.

Questions of royal line of succession aside, I doubt any of Harry's close relatives feel he's "not as important as Charles or William."

In several more years, Harry will be 35 (and most likely married with at least one child).

Prince George of Hanover, later Elector and later still King George I of Great Britain, married in November 1682, Sophia, daughter of the Duke of Brunswick-Luneberg-Celle, at Celle Castle Chapel Germany, Celle Castle being her family's ancestral home. He was 21, she was 16.
The marriage was miserably unhappy and Sophia was kept imprisoned for over thirty years at the Castle of Ahlden in Hanover. The Renaissance Chapel where the couple were married looks very pretty, however.

It was indeed a magnifent and joyful ceremony. I read somewhere however that Princess Margaret and her husband being sent as representatives of the Queen to that wedding was a tit for tat thing because the Belgian royal family had been a bit snippy about Margaret marrying a photographer and a commoner.

I agree with your comments about Westminster Abbey but, to my mind, it's dark and the rood screen separates the majority of the congregation from the High Altar where the marriage is taking place.

If I remember correctly, when Prince Edward and Sophie married they had the first part of the service in front of the rood screen at St George's Chapel and then went to the High Altar for the marriage itself.

St Paul's is much lighter and more inclusive. While I appreciate that, because of its size, those at the back probably have no better view than those at the back of the Abbey, at least there's no physical barrier between them and the bride and groom.

The most beautiful wedding ever was the one of Doña Elena de Borbón y Grecia, Infanta de España with Don Jaime de Marichalar y Sáenz de Tejada, son of the Conde de Ripalda.

It took place in the magnificent Catedral de Santa María de la Sede, there was a processional ride in a carriage through festive Sevilla. Wonderful. Pictures.
