With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding just weeks away, we've come down with a serious case of royal wedding fever. How could we not — the hype around the glorious affair is contagious! So much so that even members of the royal family have become swept up in the pomp and pageantry, namely Kate Middleton's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton.
Ahead of Harry and Meghan's May 19 nuptials, the couple — who own party supply company Party Pieces — have stocked their online store with royal-themed wedding decorations including Union Jack flags, bunting, and cake stands.

Hello! Magazine discovered that if customers search "royal wedding" on the site, a whole host of patriotic pieces perfect for the public's own at-home celebrations appear. Party Pieces — which Carole, 63, launched in 1987 — sells supplies for celebrations including baby showers, weddings, and bachelorette parties and is very much a family-run business.
"My children have played a huge part in [the business]," Carole writes on the website. "[Our son], James Middleton, established our personalized cakes, [Kate] started the 1st birthday side of the business, and [Pippa Middleton] developed the Party Pieces blog." Carole's husband, Michael, has also helped to grow the business over the past 30 years.
Harry and Meghan will exchange vows at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19, and while we know many of the details like who is making the cake and who is (and more importantly who isn't) invited to attend the magical affair, we're yet to find out if Meghan has enlisted supplies from Party Pieces to decorate her special day. We'll find out in just a few more weeks!
