Yes, the pair have been one of the most talked about couples of the last year and news of the pair's impending nuptials has ensured that is going to stay the same for the year ahead.

Yes, the pair are expected to marry in the spring of 2018 with the eyes of the world on them, as it was for Harry's older brother William on his big day.

However, how will Harry’s wedding differ from that of Williams?

Well, the location could be the first big difference.

In 2011, the world watched as Kate Middleton walked down the aisle of Westminster Abbey, however, many believe it is unlikely that Meghan Markle will do the same.

Meghan was previously married from 2011 to 2013, which might prevent her from marrying in the same place that Prince William and Queen Elizabeth did.

Many say that there are a lot of other options for wedding venues for Harry and Meghan, namely St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh and Crathie Kirk near Balmoral.

Timing is also everything when it comes to this possible marriage as just two years ago Meghan would not have been allowed to marry the Prince thanks to her religious beliefs.

Up until 2015, it was illegal for Catholics to marry into the Royal family and they are still prevented from becoming Queen of England.

Early rumours suggest that Harry and Meghan will take the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, however, a location still remains undecided.
