There are only three months until the royal wedding and the preparations have been pretty intense. Here's what we know so far about the big day.

Kensington Palace shared the news that the wedding ceremony will be held at Windsor Castle in St. George's Chapel, much different from Kate and William's wedding at Westminster Abbey, apparently the couple wanted to get married at Frogmore House, but that location was denied by the family. They'll be married on May 19th to ensure that Harry's 96-year-old grandfather can attend. It's unusual that the wedding falls on a weekend, royal weddings are traditionally bank holidays, and they fall on a weekday. The ceremony will follow with a parade, and the couple will ride in a horse-drawn carriage. There will be two receptions following, one in St George's Hall and another at a secret location.

As for the food at the reception. The cake is usually fruit-based and this year it will be a banana cake. Megan is going to incorporate her American roots and have comfort food available at the second reception, probably a gourmet-take on things like grilled cheese and hamburgers. Megan will also be challenging some traditions by giving a speech about the groom at the wedding. It's rumored that Ed Sheeran will be performing and maybe the Spice Girls. 

Meghan knows really well what she likes and the main thing with Meghan is to listen to her and work in collaboration with her. Ive already said too much.

As for the dress, a couple of designers have been rumored to be designing the dress. Alexander McQueen, Inbal Dror, and Roland Mouret have been the top names. Mouret has worked with her often and they're close friends. It's also been said that it cost half a million dollars. Rules say she can't wear a tiara until after the wedding, but it's likely she will wear one for her wedding day. She will have to be baptized in the Church of England before her wedding, and the couple will most likely be granted the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
