A recording of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming wedding ceremony is set to be released on vinyl.
The audio from the royal wedding, which will take place at Windsor Castle on May 19, will also be the first of its kind to be released on streaming services, with Decca behind the recording – which is due to be made available just hours after the ceremony has taken place.
As well as a digital version, royal fans will be able to buy a recording of Harry and Meghan’s wedding on vinyl, with a release date yet to be specified.
The traditional ceremonials will feature on the recording alongside performances by the likes of cellist Sheku Kanneh Mason and the Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas. The Choir of St George’s Chapel and gospel group Kingdom Choir will also perform during the wedding.
Speaking about the release, the recording’s producer, Anna Barry, acknowledged the “great responsibility” of covering the next royal wedding in this manner.
“Capturing the words and music of this Royal Wedding is a great responsibility, knowing how much a permanent record of the event will mean to so many people around the world,” she said.
“Our Decca team will deliver a state-of-the-art recording which captures every nuance of this very happy day and it will be a joy to be a part of the celebrations.”
Back in January, one intrepid DJ managed to slip his business card into Prince Harry’s pocket in an attempt to secure a performance slot at the royal’s wedding.
