Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding on May 19 is fast approaching. 

The fairy-tale romance has it all: the crown, family drama, snubbed guests, a castle and, of course, an unusually flowery cake.

But if you’ve wondered about such details as what time is the wedding, where is it taking place and WHO is walking Meghan Markle down the aisle, we’ve got all the answers below. 

What time is the royal wedding? 

The wedding will take place on Saturday, May 19. For viewers in the U.K., it starts at 12 p.m. But for those in the U.S., expect a wakeup call at 7 a.m. EST, or 4 a.m. PST.

Where will the wedding take place? 

Not London. The nuptials are being held at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. 

How much will it cost? Who is footing the bill?

The wedding will reportedly cost around $2.7 million. But once you add the cost of security, it’ll be in the ballpark of $40 million, the British wedding app Bridebook estimates. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding ended up costing about $34 million.

As Kensington Palace said just after Harry and Meghan got engaged, “The Royal Family will pay for the core aspects of the wedding, such as the church service, the associated music, flowers, decorations and the reception afterwards.”

What will the newlyweds’ titles be after the wedding?

Their titles will be given by the queen and announced the day of the wedding. Many are predicting that His Royal Highness Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Meghan Markle will become the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 

Where will they honeymoon?

The two have said that they are going to delay their honeymoon so they can start on their work (and reportedly attend Prince Charles’ 70th birthday party, which will take place just a few days after the wedding).
