“There are no plans to switch venues or hold a bigger wedding. They aren’t even thinking about their wedding at this time. There will come a time to rearrange, but that’s not yet,” People magazine reported, quoting a spokesperson for the couple.

The Buckingham Palace could not immediately be reached for a comment.
