If you’re attending the royal wedding on May 19 – firstly, lucky you. Secondly, you’d better make sure you’re across the rather strict and complicated dress code.
(This is definitely not going to be anything like your cousin Linda’s wedding.)
1. Hats must be worn inside the church.
Remember how your mum would always tell you to take your hat off inside the house? That rule doesn’t apply to the royal family, apparently.
Female guests are expected to cover their hair with hats, and it’s actually considered a big no-no if you don’t wear a hat inside the church.
It’s also a way of showing off your wealth – the more elaborate the hat, the more money you have. Clearly.
2. The bride’s bouquet must have myrtle.
This is something that started with Queen Victoria, and it’s been a royal tradition ever since.
