According to People, a giant, palace-like marquee (aka an ornate, glass tent!) has already been set up on the sprawling, 18-acre grounds at the Middleton’s home.
The expansive structure was reportedly shipped from Belgium and was installed by Peppers Marquees, a company that has worked with Prince Charles for years.

Though Kate will be in attendance at the wedding, she will not have a special role in Pippa’s bridal party as to “not upstage her sister.” As for Pippa’s wedding dress? A royal style expert recently revealed the bride could wear something “lavish and romantic by Marchesa or upmarket luxe by Ralph & Russo.”
“Other possibilities include Temperley, which both she and Kate wear regularly or Jenny Packham,” the style expert said, adding, “[Whatever the design], the dress will look as good from the back as the front!”
