The venue for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding has been decided to be held on May 19 at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle – which is a much venue than Westminster Abbey, where Harry’s older brother, Prince William, married Kate Middleton.

Her compassion, evident in the causes she supports, and her drive to break down stereotypes — obvious in her actions — will connect her to a generation in much need of kindness”, while calling Meghan to be the princess of people. Priyanka had also expressed that their friendship had developed over time and through their mutual love for food.

Priyanka is likely to be in the royal wedding guests list, but there are speculations about her being the maid of honour of Meghan on her wedding day.
