(The Queen is also the head of the Church of England.) Kensington Palace announced that the Queen would indeed be in attendance.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot on May 19 at Windsor Castle.

It was previously revealed that the pair will say "I do" at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Harry proposed to Ms Markle, whose previous fame was as an actress in the TV series Suits, during a night in over a roast chicken dinner, after a 16-month whirlwind romance.

It was revealed on November 28 - just one day after the engagement was announced - that Harry, 33, and Markle, 36, would have a spring wedding in the chapel, which is the main place of worship at Windsor Castle.

Reacting to the clash with the cup match, an FA spokesman said the organisation was "delighted" for Prince Harry and Ms Markle. "They are delighted that the handsome grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple".

The 19th May falls on a Saturday next year, and while this is the most popular day of the week for weddings, Harry and Meghan are breaking with a royal wedding tradition by choosing to marry on a weekend.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be Wednesday on May 19, 2018, at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, Kensington Palace announced on Friday. Prince Charles married Princess Diana on a Wednesday, while Prince William married Kate Middleton on a Friday, and Queen Elizabeth married Prince Philip on a Thursday.

Prince William will probably be there but he'll have a busy day as there's another big event happening too - The FA Cup Final!
