Unless you've been living under the biggest rock on the planet, then surely you'll have heard the news that former Suits star Meghan Markle is set to wed Prince Harry in May. The couple, who announced their engagement in November 2017 after nearly one year of dating, have been doing quite a lot as a publicly engaged couple. Whether it's attending special events, like a private Christmas Day church service with the rest of Prince Harry's family (or as we know them, the rest of the U.K.'s royal family) or participating in public events and meet and greets with well-wishers, Markle has dived headlong into the life she will permanently be leading with great enthusiasm. 

That said, she and Harry have also had to plan a wedding like any couple making their way to the altar would be doing. While there are some fairly standard tasks to complete before they get married, like secure the caterer and solidify the guest list, there are also some very specific royal-related tasks Markle needs to complete as part of her wedding prep. 

What are those tasks exactly? Well, keep clicking and see for yourself.
