From Meghan Markle’s wedding dress and her bridal beauty routine to the 36 year old’s predicted hairstyle, royal fans cannot wait to see what the bride-to-be will look like on her big day.
But as Prince Harry’s fiancée preps for the royal wedding, there’s one aspect of her bridal look that’s still up for debate.
Will Meghan wear a veil as she walks down the aisle in Windsor?
Here’s what you need to know…
Is it royal protocol to wear a veil on your wedding day?
Royal expert at managing editor of Daily Break told Express.co.uk: “In all my research on royalty, I’ve never come across anything that dictates what a royal bride should wear on her wedding day.
“I believe it’s more tradition than anything else that a bride — royal or not — wear a veil.”
Princess Anne opted for a Tudor-style, embroidered dress for her wedding to Mark Phillips in 1973
But of course, many famous royal brides in recent history have opted for the extra garment.
When Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011, she stuck to the bridal tradition.
The 36 year old wore an ivory silk veil with a hand cut flower lace edge. The entire thing was a whopping 72 inches long, and was pinned onto her Cartier halo tiara, rather than kept in place with a comb design.
When she married Prince Charles 1981, Princess Diana made history with her unforgettable wedding dress.
The (then) 20 year old also wore a wedding veil to complete her look.
The tulle veil actually was longer than her famous train — an incredible 153 yards long.
When Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip married in 1947, she looked exceptional in her bridal gown.
Likewise, the then-Princess opted for a traditional veil to complete her look.
