LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry and fiancee American actress Meghan Markle have released more details about their May 19 wedding, revealing that the event will include a carriage ride through Windsor so they can share the big day with the public.

The couple will marry at noon in St. George’s Chapel, the 15th century church on the grounds of Windsor Castle that has long been the backdrop of choice for royal occasions. Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, gave permission for use of the venue and will attend the wedding.

Kensington Palace said in a statement that the couple is “hugely grateful” for the many good wishes they have received and they hope the carriage ride will give the general public a chance to take part.

“They hope this short journey will provide an opportunity for more people to come together around Windsor and to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day,” the palace said.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby is to marry the couple. A reception for the couple and guests from the congregation will be held in St. George’s Hall after the carriage ride.

Prince Charles, the father of the groom, will give a private evening reception for the couple, close friends and family at an undisclosed location.

  1. While we savor the latest details of the upcoming Royal wedding (and I DO sincerely wish the happy couple all the best!), may I address an issue a bit more “down to earth”? The need for more public toilets and shelter for tens of thousands of Homeless folks in The City of Angels. My comments to Gale Holland, writer on homeless issues for the LA Times: “Gale, I communicated with you several years ago during my visit to LA about the need for more public toilets in The City of Angels after the manager of the KFC on 7th street near Central said they had no restroom even for paying customers (finger-lickin’ is fine, but it’s nice to wash one’s hands after eating The Colonel’s chicken)…My friends at People for Fairness Coalition in DC are working hard on getting more public toilets in our nation’s capital city, and here in Las Vegas there are now 6 public toilets near the shelters. The US Centers for Disease Control says hand-washing is on of the best ways to prevent the spread of contagious diseases spread by “casual contact” like Norovirus, flu, Ebola, Hepatitis A, TB, SARS, and others. As a formerly homeless person who has lived in shelters and sometimes on the streets of several large cities, I have sympathy for what we “Po’ folks” endure, and I believe the basics of life should be available, including food, shelter and toilet facilities—which are VERY basic needs! I understand the difficulty of finding a location for shelters and low-income housing: if I currently had a wife and children, or frail elderly family member, I would not want a homeless shelter, halfway house, mental hospital, rehab center, or other “Institution” for people with problems, including mental health issues, violent criminal histories, and drug or alcohol addictions in my neighborhood–and many homeless people DO have one or more of these problems. Homeless people are often victims of crime, too: at this very moment we have a serial shooter here in Sin CIty (aka Las Vegas) who has murdered at least 3 homeless people, and probably more, during the pst couple weeks, and last year we had the “Sin CIty Skullcracker” killer (who slept at St. Vincent’s Men’s Shelter) who bashed in the heads of homeless men sleeping outside with a large hammer. The lovely weather in LA, San Diego and other cities in California, and (despite blistering summers) Las Vegas, make it easy to live outside. Homeless folks naturally want to live in a nice climate and have access to food, libraries, and public transportation, like everyone else. Real estate value and costs are so high in California that rents are unaffordable for low-income people, and those who have invested their hard-earned money in an expensive home do not want the value of their property hurt by having public housing or shelters nearby. When politicians decided to shut down large state mental hospitals years ago, like St. Elizabeth’s in SE Washington, DC and Dorothea Dix in Raleigh, thousands of mentally-ill people were dumped on the streets with little or no help or supervision. Crack cocaine and designer drugs didn’t help matters regarding mental health, STDs, family stability and crime, especially gang-related drug territory violence. Lack of decent jobs which pay enough to at least rent a room is another major problem. I don’t have any easy answers, but I do feel that a government public works/ public jobs program to replace “welfare” programs like SSI (Supplemental Security Income), section 8/public housing, EBT/SNAP/food stamps would reduce the number of idle people clogging the streets or committing crimes (at least during their work hours!), allow people the dignity of working for their money instead of getting welfare, and provide enough income to rent a room, especially if people are willing to share rental costs. The public work programs should include building thousands of cheap, efficient small housing units which low-income folks can actually afford to rent. Our current system puts huge amounts of government money in the pockets of slumlords, public housing bureaucrats, people who buy food stamps at 50%, drug rehab managers, etc rather than in the pockets of low-income folks. Thanks for your article, Gale!”
    Now, we can get back to letting the Illuminati have their fun!
