FINAL COUNTDOWN! Meghan Markle Is Officially The Duchess Of Sussex - See The 22-Page Program, Decor, Cake & Everything We Know About The Royal Wedding Dress!


Crown, secured! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are walking down the aisle in a matter of hours, and it's going to be epic.  We've got everything you need to know - including their new titles - about the Royal Wedding inside...

The Royal titles have been announced!  They're just as predicted, but it's officially official.  Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry & Meghan Markle have officially received the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The statement from the Palace reads:

The Queen has today been pleased to confer a Dukedom on Prince Henry of Wales. His titles will be Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel.

Prince Harry thus becomes His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex, and Ms. Meghan Markle on marriage will become Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.


From Cali to the crown!

Who WON'T be getting a title or the traditional Code of Arms, is Thomas Markle.  Reportedly, The Queen has decided not to award Meghan's father said Code of Arms, which carry a pseudo-title of sorts, despite awarding them to Kate Middleton's father and other commoners' families. 

Apparently, it would have been too "difficult" to do so due to Meghan's estranged relationship with the rest of her family, whom the Code of Arms would technically extend to.


This first sneak peek at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle though, GORGE!  This ish is about to be re-created on everybody's Wedding Venue Pinterest board.

Meghan & Harry will be the sixteenth Royal Couple to celebrate their Marriage at Windsor Castle since 1863.


While we know the former "Suits" star isn't having a Maid of Honor because she couldn't choose among her friends, bridesmaids, mini-bridesmaids, paigeboys and flowergirls will be a-plenty.  They're all the children of the couple's closest friends.

As for when everybody's walking down the aisle today, including Prince Charleswho is now escorting Meghan, here's the official Order of Service.  I includes full details about the processions, music, hymns, prayers and readings. It's 22 pages, so nothing was left to chance.


Friday's rehearsals gave us a peek at what to expect at 7am ET when Meghan Markle makes her final walk to #securethecrown.


The Royal Wedding cake is FULL of lemons, and is the perfect mix of American and British yumminess.

As for Meghan's dress, the Palace is still keeping the designer under wraps.  But, her good friend Roland Mouret (who is actually french) and British designer Cynthia Rowley are in the running.  The latter is rumored to be creating her reception dress. Ralph & Russo and Erdem are also possibilities.

Meghan's mom Doria Ragland was spotted making her way to London earlier this week with a Burberry garment bag.  So it led folks to believe it may be part of her mother-of-the-bride weddign day look, which could give a hint that Meghan's dress designer COULD be the brand's chief designer, Christopher Bailey.

We hear the super intimate and exclusive reception is full of Hollywood bigwigs, and some of Harry's close friends aren't even invited.  And they're salty about it.  Reportedly, Oprah and George and Amal Clooney will be in attendance at the post-reception.  Pryianka Chopra, Meghan's good friend and "Quantico" star, will be at the wedding, but not as a bridesmaid.

You ready for this Royal Wedding?!
