Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will invite more than 2,600 members of the public to Windsor Castle for their wedding day, Kensington Palace announced Friday.

Those lucky members invited to the Windsor Castle grounds will get to see the couple and their guests arrive at St. George's Chapel and watch Prince Harry and Markle leave on a carriage procession through Windsor after the ceremony on May 19, CNN reported.

"Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have said they want their wedding day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too," a palace press release said, according to CNN.

"This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters and values of the bride and groom," the statement continued.

According to the statement, 1,200 public members will be nominated to attend by nine regional Lord Lieutenant offices. The couple asked that the people be chosen "from a broad range of backgrounds and ages, including young people who have shown strong leadership, and those who have served their communities."

Another 200 invitees will come from charities and organizations that Prince Harry and Markle have connections with. Some 100 students from The Royal School, Great Park, Windsor and St George's School, Windsor Castle will get to come along with 610 Windsor Castle community members, the announcement said.

The final 530 invitees will come from the Royal Households and Crown Estate, Kensington Palace said.

Prince Harry and Markle have not shared the guest list for the actual ceremony inside St. George's Chapel, which holds about 800, according to CNN.

The broadcaster noted that Harry's parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, were married in 1981 at St. Paul's Cathedral, while his older brother, Prince William, wed Kate Middleton in 2011 at Westminster Abbey.
