Prince Harry’s communication secretary, Jason Knauf, revealed the couple are “delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives together as a married couple.” He added, “They also want the day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too and are currently working through ideas as to how this might be achieved.”
