Harry and Meghan’s wedding no tick-box exercise



Justin Welby has said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding is no tick-box exercise and their love provides a model for the rest of the nation.

They are due to marry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in May.

It’s important because people look at it and see a model of how two people commit their lives to one another before God in the presence of millions of people.

He refused to confirm whether he would be conducting the ceremony, saying I think that’s up to them, but revealed he was looking forward to the big event, saying it would be fun.
