The well-known tradition actually started with Queen Victoria in 1840.
Could Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's get anymore adorable? Probably not.
...like this one from Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding. Perhaps we'll get another peek at baby Prince Louis with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's portrait?
There's actually a big difference between Prince William and Prince Harry's interviews—from the atmosphere to the body language to the outfits. See for yourself here.
Would you LOOK at the details on Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding cake?
It housed the weddings of Queen Anne (1683), George III (1761), George IV (1795), Queen Victoria (1840), and George V (1893). Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding took place in Westminister Abbey. Kensington Palace announced Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding will take place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle—straying from tradition.
However, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge traveled by car and Princess Diana and Prince Charles took a carriage. Harry and Meghan will be riding in a carriage, as well, the first time we see them as a married couple.
However, Prince William broke this tradition when he named his brother best man. According to The Guardian, "Bridegrooms in royal weddings traditionally chose a 'supporter' instead of a best man. The Prince of Wales chose his brother Prince Andrew to be his supporter when he married Diana at St Paul's Cathedral in 1981." Harry chose William to be his best man as well.
...even though American tradition calls for the bride's family to pay for the wedding.
The only exception is if the groom is not royal, in which case they sit on the left.
Most British weddings are held at noon and are followed by a seated luncheon called a "wedding breakfast." There's also a gathering in the evening. Harry and Meghan will have a luncheon at St. George's Hall after the wedding service and an evening reception at Frogmore House, hosted by Prince Charles.
Lookin' at you, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.
The honor of having the princess title precede your first name is reserved for ladies born into the royal family. Therefore, Meghan Markle won't be called "Princess Meghan."
There's a big difference between a Princess and a Duchess, and people are still debating whether Kate Middleton is both. Technically Princess Diana shouldn't even be called Princess Diana—she's Diana, Princess of Wales. Meghan Markle won't be considered a princess because she doesn't have royal blood.
...and instead of a bachelorette party the woman has a "Hen party." (FYI Diddy and Kanye were not at Prince William's Stag...only in my dreams.)
wave kiss in front of the crowd. (We are all the little girl on the left.) Harry and Meghan won't have a balcony kiss because Windsor Castle doesn't have a grand balcony the way Buckingham Palace does, but we will get to see something.
...since it's tradition for royal males to serve in the military.
No, we're not kidding. Pictured above is a slice from William and Kate's 2011 wedding. Guess you can really have your cake and eat it too!
