Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement last month, there has been mounting speculation about what their royal wedding will be like. However, we do now know that royal family members like Kate will be expected to adhere to a very strict rule about their outfits for the occasion.
The Palace has confirmed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May 2018, and the whole royal family will be in attendance as ‘the wedding will be a family event.’
OK! magazine reports that female members of the royal family are required to wear hats to all formal events, meaning that when Prince Harry marries Meghan next May, the Duchess of Cambridge and other female family members will be expected to don a hat for the big day.
Kate, who will have welcomed her third child just one month before the wedding, will be expected to adhere to this strict dress code, and there have been people who have said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding is ‘unfair’ for Kate, as she will be postpartum at the time.
However, it is not known at this stage whether she will have her new baby with her for the special occasion, and we’re sure there will be plenty of help to hand should the Duchess need it.
The Duchess of Cambridge is, however, likely to have Prince George and Princess Charlotte in tow, as it’s been revealed that the young royals will have a special part to play in the big day.
Whether Prince George and Princess Charlotte will play similar roles in their uncle Harry’s wedding as they did for Pippa Middleton in her May wedding in 2017 is unknown at this stage. But we can guarantee they will look adorable either way!
