Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Wedding Date Has 'Star Wars' Connection

By TheBlast Staff

May 19 will forever be known as the day His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle tied the knot, but it also has significance for another important figure in British and Rebel history.

Kensington Palace just revealed the date of the big wedding, which is set to take place at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

There were reports the couple would exchange vows over Memorial Day weekend, but they saved their guests the trouble traveling during the holiday.

May 19 is already special, and interesting that the date is revealed on the same day "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" comes out -- it's the birth of Peter Mayhew, a.k.a Chewbacca.

Harry clearly has a love for "Star Wars," he was at the London premiere this week and mingled with BB-8. He also visited the set and hung with the Wookie himself in 2016.

I think we can all join Chewbacca in wishing Harry and Meghan the best of luck, "AAARARRRGWWWH!!!"
