The royal wedding countdown is on — and with just a few weeks to go until Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s big day, the soon-to-be husband and wife have been busy with pre-wedding activities. The best part? They’ve successfully mixed US and UK culture while doing so!
For starters, Harry allegedly already had his “stag,” which is the British term for a bachelor party, “some time ago” at a private residence in the UK. Do you think his newly-announced best man, Prince William, was in attendance?
Of course, Meghan has to celebrate her last moments as a maid as well! According to E! News, Meghan’s bachelorette party will take place “in some form” ahead of the May 19 nuptials (we guess we can count on Kate Middleton now not being there since she just had her third baby!). But with all of Meghan’s family and friends heading to the UK for her wedding, the week of the event might be the perfect time for the get-together with her bridesmaids. “That week of the wedding is the perfect time for all her friends to get together for a co-ed bachelorette dinner,” an insider told the new outlet.
On top of that, Harry and Meghan are also planning a rehearsal dinner before the wedding — which is something that’s not extremely common in the UK. The source told E! that it will take place two nights before the wedding (May 17), and could possibly even roll in with Meghan’s bachelorette party. Fun!
It was previously reported that Meghan already had her spa-themed bridal shower in early March at Soho Farmhouse in London. The venue featured cabins, pools, cottages, a movie theater, a spa, shopping, dining, and more, and her BFF Markus Anderson allegedly hosted the event. It’s unclear if Kate and Queen Elizabeth were there — but we hope they attend the rest of the fun planned acitivities!
