Sooo have you heard there’s a royal wedding tomorrow?
The world is at peak royal wedding frenzy, people. In less than 24 hours, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are tying the knot in what is most likely to be the biggest royal wedding til wee Prince George is grown.
It’s an occasion befitting all the pageantry the British royal family has to offer. But for those of us watching at home, you can still make a big do.

Cheers to the happy couple!
