The pair confirmed their engagement in November and said the service would be at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.
The date breaks with tradition as royal weddings usually take place on a weekday - the Queen wed on a Thursday and the Duke of Cambridge on a Friday.
The wedding will be on the same day as the FA Cup Final, which Prince William normally attends as FA president.
The time of the match has yet to be confirmed, but in recent years it has taken place at 17:30 GMT.
The Royal Family will pay for the wedding, including the service, music, flowers and reception.
The event will take place just a month after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to welcome their third child to the family.
Ms Markle will be baptised into the Church of England and confirmed before the wedding.
Earlier this week, Kensington Palace announced the couple will be spending Christmas together at Sandringham with the Queen.
