The official Order of Service for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been released by Kensington Palace.

The 22-page-booklet outlines details about the processions, music, hymns, prayers and readings which will all be part of the ceremony in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Kensington Palace said both the Prince and Markle had “taken a great deal of care in selecting all elements for their service”.

“Like any couple getting married, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have taken a great deal of care in selecting all elements for their service,” 

“This has been a collaborative effort led by Prince Harry and Ms. Markle. They have also sought the advice of The Prince of Wales for the orchestral music before the Service begins.”

The document says Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father, is still listed as the person who will walk Meghan down the aisle. The palace confirmed the error was a matter of timing.

“The Order of Service was produced before it became clear that Mr. Thomas Markle would be unable to attend the wedding on medical advice,” the palace said. “As a result, some aspects will be different to what has been printed. As previously announced, Ms. Markle has asked The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of The Quire”.
