And it actually makes sense!

With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding taking place in less than a month, we’re all counting down the days till the royal couple ties the knot at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. Put 19th May in your diaries people!

With just over a month to go until the big day, there’s plenty of wedding prep for the royal couple, from finalising the seating arrangements to selecting the official bridal party, with Kensington Palace only confirming Prince William as Prince Harry’s best man today, following yesterday’s update on their choice of wedding music.

Basically, like any other couple in the run up to a wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a lot on their plate, with multiple royal family members said to be lending a hand to ensure that the run up goes as smoothly as possible.

One person who is said to be getting involved in the wedding prep is Queen Elizabeth, putting her 92 years of royal event experience to good use and giving the couple her top advice for the big day.

In Channel 5’s documentary, Diana to Meghan: Royal Wedding Secrets, one of the Queen’s nifty tricks for ensuring royal events go smoothly was revealed - and she’s sure to be implementing it on May 19th.

The Queen reportedly likes to hide microphones in flower arrangements, with Prince Charles’ former butler, Grant Harold, explaining how the monarch prefers the microphones to be out of sight.

It is therefore expected that the Queen will be ensuring that Harry and Meghan’s flower arrangements will be filled with microphones on the big day.

Let’s hope this doesn’t lead to some awkward royal gossip being unearthed!
