The wedding date of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle clashes with FA Cup final

The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been announced to take place on May 19 next year, the same day for this season’s FA Cup final.

The wedding ceremony will hold at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same day for the famous cup decider at Wembley.

This has thrown into doubt whether FA president Prince William – Harry’s brother – will present the trophy to the winning captain as usual.

Harry is also a supporter of Arsenal, who won the FA Cup last season and were handed their winners medals by William; the Duke of Cambridge.

The Gunners also beat William’s beloved Aston Villa in the 2015 final, where he handed losers medals to the Villa players.

The FA have confirmed the final will not be moved to another date and a Kensington Palace spokesman said: “We are aware of it and we haven’t announced times yet. It will be considered as part of the further planning.”

Asked why a Saturday, the spokesman said: “They felt it would give the public the greatest opportunity to watch, come out, support and get involved.”
