Who, What, Where, When
Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle are being married at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor on Saturday, May 19th.

How to Watch
If your invite got lost in the mail like mine obviously did, you can watch the wedding live on NBC, PBS, CBS, or at nytimes.com at 7 a.m. EST/10 a.m. PST.

The Dress
Of course, we can’t wait to see what everyone wears to this very special occasion. Meghan’s dress is being kept secret, but the rumor mill has named these three designers as most likely to have made her gown: Erdem Moralioglu, Roland Mouret and the Ralph & Russo duo (who designed the gown Markle wore in her engagement photographs).

The Dress Code
Expect to see the men wearing either a “uniform, morning coat, or lounge suit,” and the ladies wearing a “day dress with hat” according the invitation. We will likely see many hats and fascinators, like the kind Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice wore at  Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011.

Celebs We Expect to See in Attendance
Besides the growing list of superstars rumored to be performing (Ed Sheeran, The Spice Girls, Elton John, and Sam Smith to name a few), we expect to see the likes of the Clooneys, Serena Williams, Meghan’s Suits co-stars, and Priyanka Chopra.

The Drama
Maybe it’s because Prince Harry has had his own controversies, or maybe it’s because Meghan is the first American to marry into the royal family since 1937. One thing’s for sure: there’s been drama surrounding this couple since the engagement announcement. From Meghan’s father flip-flopping on walking her down the aisle, to her family working with paparazzi to bad mouth her to the press—even though they seemingly don’t have relationships with her—we hope the drama will cease once the wedding is over.

What Does This Mean for Prince Harry’s Line to the Throne?
Not much. Prince Harry is currently sixth in line to the throne, right behind the newest royal family member, Prince Louis of Cambridge (son of Prince William and Duchess Kate). The marriage will not change the order to the throne.
