The couple will invite 2,600 folks from different walks of life into the Windsor Castle grounds on the wedding day.
Kensington Palace said in a statement, “Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have said they want their wedding day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too.”
