Posted by Blog Team on

It is with enormous pride that we unveil these official Australian gold and silver tributes marking the royal wedding of H.R.H. Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle.

A tremendously popular member of the British Royal Family, Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, better known as Prince Harry, is the second son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales. Born on 15 September 1984 in London, he is sixth in line to the throne.

On leaving school, the Prince began his gap year in Australia, working as a jackaroo on a cattle station in Queensland. Subsequently, he entered the UK’s Royal Military Academy Sandhurst where he completed officer training before serving in Afghanistan.

In 2015 he re-visited Australia where, during a secondment to the Australian Defence Force, he trained with the Special Air Service Regiment, a commando unit based in Perth.

Having ended his military career, Prince Harry is today an extremely active member of the Royal Family, renowned for his dedication to charitable activities and mentoring schemes for vulnerable young people. Additionally, he has a deep personal interest in animal conservation in Africa, a passion he shares with Meghan Markle.

On 27 November 2017, the Office of the Prince of Wales at Clarence House made the official announcement of their engagement:

His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales
is delighted to announce the engagement of
Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle.”

American actress Meghan Markle was introduced to Prince Harry by a mutual friend in 2016. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she earned a bachelor’s degree with a double major in theatre and international studies from the Northwestern University, Illinois, before going on to become a successful screen actress best known for her role in Suits.

Ms Markle has undertaken humanitarian work on behalf of several international charities, including time as an Advocate with the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. She shares a love for Botswana with her husband, a country the couple visit regularly as part of his role as patron of Rhino Conservation Botswana.

On 15 December 2017, Kensington Palace announced that the marriage of Prince Harry and Ms Markle would take place on 19 May 2018 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
