In just a matter of hours, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot, and some final details about the royal wedding have just been released.

Kensington Palace has shared the Order of Service for the ceremony to take place at St George’s Chapel, which mentions details of readings, vows and processions.

And in what may be a surprise to some royal fans, there is a racy detail hidden amongst it all.

After the bride arrives, The Dean of Windsor will greet the congregation, before delivering a reading.

“In the presence of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we have come together to witness the marriage of Henry Charles Albert David and Rachel Meghan, to pray for God’s blessing on them, to share their joy and to celebrate their love,” he will recite initially.

After another verse, he will go on to say, “The gift of marriage brings husband and wife together in the delight and tenderness of sexual union and joyful commitment to the end of their lives”.

While some may be surprised by the perhaps ‘racy’ choice of words, this passage is commonly used by the Church of England, and featured as a reference on their website.

Now it’s not long to go till the highly anticipated wedding of the year.

Earlier this week Kensington Palace said in a statement that Meghan asked the Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle at St George’s Chapel on her wedding day.

“The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms Markle to The Royal Family in this way,” the statement read. 

Meghan previously confirmed her father Thomas Markle would not be attending the wedding. 

This came amid reports he’d undergone heart surgery and been involved in a staged paparazzi scandal.
