Prince Albert II also married in the Palace forecourt and not the chapel it might have something to do with the heat or chapel size in warmer climates?

I'd imagine its not an issue once the bishop/Archbishop approves?

Anglican ceremonies at least have to be conducted in a church (not so in every country and denomination). If you want to be married outside a church, you can only have a civil wedding. But then you would have if you chose a blessing performed by a priest after.

There are also strict regulations about where you can hold a civil ceremony in the UK. Was one if the reasons Charles had to have it at registry office.

https://www.confetti.co.uk/wedding-a...where-you-want

The royals tend to have religious weddings because of their role in the church. Even minor royals stick to that. Further from the throne, as civil weddings become more common, we may see that change as time goes on. But close to the throne, like Harry, no.


Edward and Charles are not true examples. Edward was marrying a twjce divorced woman which was not allowed. While Charles could have married Camilla in the church as rules changed, it was decided against. Since Camilla had a place in the break up if his first marriage, it would have been seen by many as special treatment for him. And for thevfuturevgeae if the church, it wasn't seen as sending the right message.

Protestant church don't consecrate church buildings, so the 'consecrated ground' argument wouldn't hold for all churches.
Presumably the Duke obtained permission from his Bishop, a requirement before a Roman Catholic marriage ceremony can be performed outside a Roman Catholic church.

In réponse to the question "Hello, I was just wondering if you are a minor royal (or the sibling to the heir e.g Prince Harry) do you have to get married in a chapel or could you choose to get married in a garden wedding ect? Was just wondering what the rules are for royals who are not in heir? " I think Charles and Edward are the best examples, because of their extreme visibility in the royal family. Their extenuating circumstances aside, they are foremost examples of how the family looks at wedding ceremonies.

Royal family members need not get married in an Anglican Church. The family may prefer a church ceremony, but civil ceremonies and ceremonies not in a chapel have prominently occurred. And the family still stands.

So, the question therefore is whether that would be possible in the CoE as well.

At Princess Elizabeth's 1947 wedding, her cousins Prince William of Gloucester and Prince Michael of Kent served as page boys.William and Michael carried Elizabeth's wedding train.
http://www.gettyimages.com/license/79666700
Is there any wedding prior to hers where only pageboys carried the wedding train?

There is also a difference between a simple Catholic marriage ceremony and one with a full sacramental mass.

Caroline and Albert of Monaco both had their Nuptial Masses celebrated in the Palace forecourt.

A baptized Catholic couple is encouraged to celebrate Mass during the exchange of vows but it is not necessary, and it does not affect the validity of their union.

Inside or outside of Mass it is considered a binding Catholic union as long as there is a priest and two witnesses.
