We're having a Royal Wedding party and you're invited!

On Saturday, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will tie the knot, and we're having a Royal Wedding party

And, er, provide your own booze because we mean join our Royal Wedding Party in the digital sense, not the physical. Soz.

The reason for our Royal Wedding party is not because it's an excuse to start drinking prosecco at 9 o'clock in the morning. No, it's because the British royal we grew up with is marrying an American woman we watched on TV, and that's a bit of a trip. Listen, people scoff and huff and puff over Irish people having an interest in the Royal Wedding. Those same people watch Coronation Street or support Man United or cheer for Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent, so they can eff off.

We're going to enjoy it and that's the end of it. The entire romance has been a peculiar real-life soap opera - and that was the preview. The marriage is just the beginning.

On Saturday, we unashamedly want to talk about the dress, the makeup, the shoes, the guests, the drama (fingers crossed there'll be some! But in a good way, y'know?). We want to point out the celebs and score the hats.


The World Cup (oh, yeah, that's on this year), will hijack our screens this summer, but this will be the event of the year.

So, about the party. We have banded together a group of royal experts (ahem, frequent readers of People.com's Royal section and watchers of The Crown. And the Diana documentary.) and we'll be commenting on Instastories, on Twitter, on Facebook and on site. We'll be eating scones and cream, drinking prosecco, potentially wearing hats, and generally making merry. Because why the hell not?

Do come along and join the conversation. It's going to be fun. Promise.
