The Household Cavalry Museum extends its congratulations to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the date of their wedding.
Prince Harry served as a member of the Blues and Royals, joining the regiment upon completing his officer training at Sandhurst in 2006, joining the Blues and Royals as a cornet (second lieutenant), rising to the rank of lieutenant within the regiment in 2008, as well as serving in Afghanistan with the Household Cavalry Regiment. Although his career in the British Army came to an end in 2015, Prince Harry has remained close to the Household Cavalry and other regiments he served with during his time in the army, and has been a passionate supporter of promoting the welfare of those who are serving or who have served their country in the Armed Forces, as well as campaigning to raise awareness of the ongoing challenges facing service personnel making the transition to civilian life, working in particular to bring wider public attention to the support that wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women need through their entire rehabilitation process.
In recognition of Prince Harry's service within the Household Cavalry, troopers of the Household Cavalry will form a 24-man staircase party outside St. George's Chapel in Windsor, before giving a royal salute to the married couple as they exit the chapel, while a troop of 24 mounted troopers will be waiting to escort the couple's carriage through the streets of Windsor as they return to Windsor Castle from the chapel.
