UK Heatwave Royal Wedding

Meghan and Harry will have glorious sunshine for their big day and beyond!

Summer appears to finally be on its way as forecasters are expecting a heatwave that will kick start around the time of the Royal wedding and continue through until June.

This will come as good news for the thousands of Royal fans hoping to see Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their wedding procession throughout Windsor, as weather experts are predicting a dry and sunny day for May 19th.

The Met Office's Graham Madge explained: "Confidence for good weather on Saturday is increasing, we expect temperatures of between 20C (68F) and 23C (73.4F)."

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden told The Express: "The remainder of this month will remain predominantly summery and confidence is increasing for another burst of very warm to hot temperatures for the next bank holiday weekend."

"It is plausible that maximum temperatures could rise into the high 20Cs or even the low 30Cs for several days in a row within this period."

"This will pave the way for a warm and settled start to summer.”
