The group’s creator, Jennifer Corbett, who is based in the US, says members are even learning how to make the perfect English cup of tea in time for the big day.
Ms Corbett told Express.co.uk: ““Each event that people plan will be different I am sure. But preparations for my group fascinator shopping mid-April with outfit shopping to follow. We will be having scones and biscuits catered. I am going to look at a venue to rent on Sunday for our viewing party.
We have decided that everyone will bring their own individual tea cup and saucer.
“However, our biggest learning deficient has been in the area of English tea. We are huge coffee drinkers in the US and the only thing we know about tea is what we call cold sweet southern tea.
“Some of us went out to tea houses in our area to learn to make tea the right way, not using Lipton tea bags.”
“We are excited to go shopping for a teapot, but none of really know what we are supposed to be looking for. I can only hope that come the day of the wedding we don’t poison ourselves!”
One of the group’s administrators Anita Kitchen earlier this week posted: “I went shopping yesterday for a dress and fascinator.
“I bought a couple of dresses, but not sure if I got the right one for the Royal Watch party. The search is still on!”
At the time Ms Corbett spoke to the Express.co.uk there were members from across 100 countries with the top 10 nations being: United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Philippines, South Africa, Australia, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Fiji and India.
