As more details trickle out about the upcoming royal wedding, the anticipation is getting overwhelming.


It's only been six years since Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot, but that already feels like a lifetime. And since then we've already forgotten all the traditions and protocols that go along with a royal wedding.

In case you need a refresher, here's what to expect when Harry and Meghan say "I do" this spring:


First and foremost, Harry had to get his grandmother's permission before he even proposed to Meghan. That's not just royal courtesy, the 1772 Royal Marriage Act requires him to get his choice of bride pre-approved by her majesty the Queen.

In the build-up to the wedding, no one is more excited than the happy couple, and just like us common folk Harry and Meghan will say goodbye to single life with bachelor and bachelorette parties. But don't expect to hear all the sordid details.

Even years later the events of Will and Kate's parties are hush hush, and the royals go to great lengths to keep these parties private.


For the big day itself, it's traditional for the groom to arrive dressed in a military uniform. Prince Albert began this tradition at his marriage to Queen Victoria in 1840, and both Prince Charles and William have continued it.

While Charles wore a naval commander's outfit, and William was dressed in an Irish Guard's uniform, there's no telling what uniform Harry will pick.

Meanwhile, Meghan's wedding day outfit has its own traditions to follow.
