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.
