It is the IT event of 2018. A royal wedding that might actually outshine that of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge almost 8 years ago. Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle’s wedding date has been set for May of this year, but it is still not too late to start planning for the event.

The location has not been set yet, but if they follow Prince William and Kate’s footsteps, Harry and Meghan will probably get married in Westminster Abbey, where both Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and his great-grandmother, the Queen Mother, also got married. Then there’s St. George’s chapel in Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry was christened, St. Paul’s Cathedral, where his parents got married, or St. James’s Palace, where little PRince George had his christening.

You can start by purchasing your flight to the UK, with the lowest in price range between $33 for one-way or $43 one-way if you are in Europe. For those travelling from the US, the prices go as low as $99 one-way to London's Gatwick Airport. If you want to land in Heathrow from the US, it will take you back $150.

There are hotels in the couple’s path to church, meaning you can get a glimpse as they travel to their venue. Hotels like 41, starting at about $592 per night, sit just opposite of Buckingham Palace, boasting views of the Royal Mews and grounds of the palace so that you could even watch from the comfort of your bedroom.

If you like to follow royal traditions, you can stay at the Goring Hotel, with prices at about $494 per night, where the Duchess of Cambridge and her bridal party departed from on the day of her wedding. Then there are properties like the Grange St. Paul’s Hotel, with prices at about $266 per night, near St. Paul’s Cathedral. If you want something more budget friendly and low-key, try the Mad Hatter Hotel, starting at about $172 per night, which has its very own pub with traditional British fare you can enjoy downstairs.

On the subject of road closures, when Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in 2011, roads both in and around the route the procession followed began closing to traffic at 6 a.m. throughout the afternoon. The route ran from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey, where thousands of spectators gathered to watch. The couple could be seen traveling by carriage to the ceremony, later returning to Buckingham Palace.*
