What's more fitting for a new royal than tea and flowers? Meghan Markle will attend her first official event as a royal at a garden party for the Prince of Wales' 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration on May 22—just three days after the royal wedding.

The Queen is throwing her son, Prince Charles, a party at Buckingham Palace with friends, family, and—wait for it—400 charities to honor the work "close to his heart." It's an opportunity for him to thank the organizations for their work over the years, according to the Telegraph. Yes, we're talkin' big hats, tea, and lots of flowers.
