The wedding rules ALL royals must follow: From what Kate Middleton will be forced to wear when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marry, to seeking Queen Elizabeth’s permission
KATE Middleton had to abide by these rules when she married Prince William in 2011.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to marry in May 2018 after announcing they’re engaged, just before Princess Eugenie announced her own upcoming nuptials.
And, in a similar fashion to when Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton married in 2011, fans are overjoyed at the prospect of a royal wedding, with many desperate to find out details, such as what the engagement ring will look like.
However, as well as the lifestyle changes Meghan will have to make if she does become a royal, a royal wedding comes with all sorts of strict rules, for both the bride and the guests…
Royal women are expected to dust off their hats for formal occasions, so when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank marry, royals such as Kate would be expected to wear a hat for the occasion.
While hats at weddings are obviously not a surprising dress code, this is apparently a strict must for royal weddings, so it’s not an option.
However it seems Kate favours headwear, often opting to accessorise her outfit with a fascinator, so it wouldn’t be an issue.
