We're just over a month away from Pippa Middleton's May 20, 2017, wedding, and we cannot get enough of the details surrounding the day. While we already know that she and fiancé James Matthews will wed at St. Mark's Church Englefield in Berkshire then head to the Middleton family home for a tented reception, and that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will both play important roles in the day, we're finally finding out a little more about the much-anticipated celebration. Including where the guests will stay, whether or not Prince Harry will bring a plus-one, and who is likely designing the bride's wedding dress.
Although there will be plenty of space in the Middleton's 18-acre yard for the party, accommodations will be tight within the home itself. According to the Daily Mail, Prince William, Duchess Kate, and their children will be staying at the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, along with their personal security. The outlet also reports that Prince Harry will be staying on the grounds for the wedding. That means that Pippa's future in-laws, David and Jane Matthews, will be staying off-site. But there's apparently no drama between the two families over the decided accommodations. "James's parents are hoteliers themselves so they are more than happy to be put up elsewhere," a source told Express. "They also understand the need for privacy." That's exactly how we like to see two families getting along before the big day.
Another guest who will likely be taking up room at the Middleton's home? Prince Harry's rumored date, Meghan Markle. The International Business Times is reporting that Harry's girlfriend will attend Pippa's wedding after all! Hello has even reported that Markle requested time off from her Suits filming schedule for May 15-22 in order to be in England for the celebration. There's still no official word from Kensington Palace on whether or not Harry will bring a plus-one, but all signs are pointing towards these two being the most adorable wedding dates ever—for the second time this year.
As for what Middleton will be wearing down the aisle, Hello reports she's likely chosen a dress from British couturier Giles Deacon. The designer was seen at the bride-to-be's home last November, toting a collection of different dresses, but told the magazine "I can never really comment on rumors. Until things are confirmed, it's just rumors." He was quick to add that he is a fan of both Pippa and Kate's personal style. "I think they've both got divine style," Deacon said. "They're thoroughly modern girls promoting British brands and looking fantastic."
