Much like any other engaged couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had their own plans for their perfect wedding day. However, if you are a public figure, and that too a royal, it is likely that your plans will be tossed out the window for more practical purposes.

It turns out that the pair have been denied their chosen venue of Frogmore House for the wedding reception.

 

Frogmore is a significant venue for the couple, as the pair have reportedly enjoyed romantic picnics at the estate and it was also the backdrop for their glamorous engagement photos.

However, according to Express, Meghan and Harry were denied the chance to celebrate their wedding at the exclusive venue, which is closed to the public for most of the year, in favour of the more 'practical' alternative, St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle.

The couple were thought to be keen on Frogmore, which Meghan described as 'dreamy', for their wedding reception, but have now been 'gently vetoed' by royal aides.

It is just a mile away from their venue of St George's Chapel, where they will wed on May 19.

According to a royal source, one  person who would have readily approved of their choice was the Queen, for whom Frogmore is a very special place.

Meghan and Harry announced their engagement on November 27, with the American actress showing off her sparkling ring complete with diamonds owned by his mother Princess Diana.

They live in Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace next door to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
