What You Can And Cannot Wear To The Royal Wedding

The biggest wedding of the year is approaching – yes, that’s right, I’m talking about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials happening on the 19th of May at St George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

While we’ve all got our date circled on the calendar and alarms set for it, you can bet we’re counting down the days till we get a glimpse of Meghan Markle in her wedding gown. As much as we’re picturing what the bride-to-be is gonna walk down the aisle in, we can’t help but also imagine what the guests are going to be decked out in. After all, we’ve got royals, celebs and socialites!

However, we are not attending a simple wedding, oh nono, we’re attending a royal wedding and with that comes certain rules and expectations that guests and family members need to abide to.

After all, no one wants to go against age-old tradition and Queen Elizabeth, right?

Here are some dos and don’ts for the royal wedding:

DO: Wear a hat


If you remember watching Price William and Kate Middleton’s nuptials back in 2011, then you must remember the plethora of quirky and insane hats that were adorned by the guests. While Queen Elizabeth was decked out in a tasteful primrose two-piece by Angela Kelly, she too was seen with a matching hat.

You might be wondering why are the hats so elaborate and fluffy? Apparently, the more festive they look, the happier you look for the bride and groom. Besides, a more elaborate design showcases one’s wealth and stature in society. So basically, the fancier your hat looks, the higher your rank is in society. #fancy
