The Gunners also beat William's beloved Aston Villa in the 2015 final, where he handed losers medals to his Villa heroes.

Asked why a Saturday, the spokesman said: "They felt it would give the public the greatest opportunity to watch, come out, support and get involved."

The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been announced for May 19 next year - and it clashes with the FA Cup final.

No decision has yet been made by the FA over who will hand over the silverware. Harry is also a supporter of Arsenal, who won the FA Cup last season and were handed their winners medals by William; the Duke of Cambridge.
