“The services will take place
a week apart. It’s going to be hectic, a little bit crazy and
a lot of fun, especially when
you factor in the [bachelor and bachelorette parties]," the insider continued to say. "But this way, they get the best of both worlds and a chance to celebrate with their loved ones on two continents."

“It’ll be a two-week celebration of love and they couldn’t be more excited about it," the insider added. This news comes just a week after Mike Tindall openly welcomed Meghan into the royal family. “It comes with a lot of history and the family that it is. It's obviously nerve-racking,” Mike said. “But she has been under enough scrutiny and pressure in her day-to-day life so I'm sure she will get through it. She will be fine."
