The wedding date presents a potential conflict for Prince William, however. Or the FA Cup final at Wembley?

Faculty basketball: Oklahoma sinks No. Three Wichita State
The Sooners have an explosive offense, enviable depth and a freshman who just might be the nation's most skilled offensive player. It can be easy to forget that Oklahoma's Trae Young has only been standing at college basketball's center stage for a few weeks.

But next year, William, who is tipped to be Harry's best man, looks likely to be otherwise engaged with wedding duties.

The pair announced their engagement late last month, and the location of the wedding was confirmed shortly afterwards.

The 33-year-old prince, who is fifth in line to the British throne, and the 36-year-old American actress met through a mutual friend in 2016 and managed to keep their relationship secret from the media for several months.

The nuptials will take place on a Saturday, which is unusual for the royals. Prince William and Kate Middleton married on Friday, April 29, 2011. Even Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip said "I do" on Thursday, November 20, 1947.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle fast became the world's most talked about couple when they announced their engagement recently and now we officially know when this whole shindig will be going down.
