On Saturday, the ‘society event of the year’, Pippa Middleton’s wedding to hedge fund manager James Matthews, will take place, with all the pomp and ceremony of a real royal wedding.
We can’t wait. You can’t wait. They probably can’t wait either.
Ahead of the big day, we’ve compiled the most eye-opening facts about the soon-to-be wedding of the year. These are the details everyone will be talking about.
2/ Prince George and Princess Charlotte have been given the honour of page boy and flower girl respectively. Cue cuteness.
3/ But sister Kate is forbidden from being a bridesmaid, according to royal protocol.
3/ Smart punters have their money on Pippa wearing a dress by British designer Giles Deacon. TBC.
4/ The bride has banned the groom’s brother, Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, from bringing his reality TV star girlfriend Vogue to the wedding. Awks.
5/ Just like Kate and Wills, Pippa will arrive at historic St Mark’s Church in a horse-drawn carriage.
6/ After the ceremony, the reception will take place in an extravagant glass marquee, shipped especially from Belgium, on the grounds of the Middleton’s estate.
7/ Roger Federer is rumoured to be one of the high-profile names on the guest list.
8/ It’s going to cost… how much?!?
9/ That’s a lot for haggis. According to the Daily Mail, the wedding will be Scottish-themed, completed with bagpipes, lashings of whisky and “haggis canapes.” Matthews’ family own a 10,000-acre estate in the Scottish highlands near Loch Ness.
And now we wait. We'll be posting all the goss (and photos!) from the wedding on the weekend - see you then.
