The couple are “extremely grateful” for the happy response to their announcement, adding they were also grateful to The Queen for granting use of the chapel.

Their wedding is expected to be a star-studded affair.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall and Harry’s pals Tom Inskip, Thomas van Straubenzee, Arthur Landon and Guy Pelly will, of course, be on the groom’s side of the church, as well as The Duchess of Cambridge who will be either heavily pregnant or a new mum at the time.

Natalie Pinkham, Ben Fogle, Joss Stone and The Obamas are also likely to be on Harry’s list, while he’ll also be welcoming to Meghan’s family – he has a good relationship with Meghan’s yoga-loving mum Doria, and has spoken to her dad Tom, a former Married With Children director, but not yet met him.

Meghan is also pals with former Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh as well as Sophie Ellis-Bexter and her husband Richard Jones.

The actress is also very close to her Suits co-stars which could mean invites for Patrick J Adams and his wife, Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellasario, and Gabriel Macht and his Bridget Jones’ actress wife Jacinda Barrett.

She’s also likely to invite co-stars Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres, best known for hit Firefly, who she previously asked for advice, saying: “Sarah and Gina give me such great advice – not just on being a good actor but being a wife and mom some day.
