9 Royal Wedding Details Only True Fans Will Know

We all have varying degrees of fascination when it comes to the Royal Family of England. Some will glance at the photos of the upcoming wedding days casually and days after it happens; others have plans to watch every detail unfold even if that means doing so in the middle of the night to accommodate the time difference in the UK. The following is generally geared toward those who fall into the latter categories.

Many of us may never know what it's truly like inside the royal wedding, so instead, we turned to self-taught experts whose knowledge comes pretty darn close. And in hopes of shaving away a few degrees of separation between us and the soon-to-be-newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, we enlisted the help of Susan Courter of What Meghan Wore, CNN Royal Contributor Victoria Arbiter, and Kaitlin Menza, one half of the duo behind the podcast Royally Obsessed (a must-listen for anyone who's made it this far into this story).

Between them, we were able to gather a few more insights on what to expect for the big day, what traditions are paramount, and, yes, we obviously talked all things Markle dress predictions. Read on for it all.

In case you still don't have the date set in your calendar and have canceled all other plans, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding will be held on the morning of May 19. Here's to the couple and to uncovering all the royal details as they unfold.
