After weeks of speculation as to which day the couple would choose, the palace has finally given us a date: Saturday, May 19, 2018.

So mark your calendars (or get your DVRs ready – if this is anything like William and Kate’s wedding, it will take place early in the morning for all of the American royal watchers)!

Royal weddings are usually held on a weekday. William and Kate were married on a Friday and the Queen and Prince Philip were wed on a Thursday. Having their wedding on a Saturday will allow for more people to view it on TV or travel to Great Britain to be there in person.

Meghan hasn’t confirmed her bridesmaids yet, though a list of contenders reads like a who’s who in the celebrity and sports worlds.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte are expected to serve as bridesmaid and page boy respectively, though Kensington Palace has yet to provide any confirmation.
