Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot at Windsor Castle on May 19, and I’m beginning to think my invitation got lost in the mail. It looks like I’ll have to settle for waking up at 3 a.m. to watch live TV coverage of the ceremony. I can’t wait to get that first glimpse of Markle’s dress, and I seriously hope the coverage includes plenty of shots of the adorable pageboy and flower girl (Prince George and Princess Charlotte, of course). 

OK, so maybe I’m a little disappointed I can’t witness this joyful occasion in person. But if you’re in the same situation, don’t despair — we can persevere and plan a royal-themed trip to London that’s fit for the Duchess of Cambridge. Considering this is London, there’s no shortage of royal sites to take in, and we can all (briefly) pretend we're royalty. You can eat at Harry and Markle’s favorite pub, check out where they spend date nights (awww) and browse at stores that are favored by Markle.
