Everything we know about Pippa Middleton's wedding (so far)
When socialite Pippa Middleton weds hedge fund manager James Matthews on May 20, it's set to be the biggest wedding of the year. Here's everything we know about what to expect.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte will have starring roles.
Kensington Palace have confirmed three-year-old Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who will be two then, will be a page boy and bridesmaid. Just think of the pictures. Pippa's cousin, 14-year-old Tallulah (whose father Gary is often considered the Middleton family black sheep) will also be in the bridal party.
Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry will all be in attendance but Kate's role is still unclear.
It's still unclear whether or not Kate will reciprocate the maid of honour duties her younger sister performed at her 2011 nuptials as she's reportedly planning on taking on a lesser role so as not to distract from the bride. She is a future queen after all.
Her husband Prince William will be joining in the festivities and was pictured leaving Pippa and James' €18m Chelsea mansion last week as the families get to know each other before the big day.
The ceremony will be very traditional.
Pippa and James will exchange vows at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire before partying at the Middleton family home in Bucklebury. The decision to host the reception at the family home provides them with unrivalled privacy, but given they own 18 acres of land, it won't exactly be a cosy affair.
Vogue Williams will not be there.
You might be asking yourself, "Why would Vogue Williams be there?" but the Irish tv presenter has been dating reality tv star Spencer Matthews, the groom's younger brother and expected Best Man, for the last two months.
A spokesperson for the former Fade Street star said she had a "prior engagement" and would not be attending one of the most talked about weddings of the decade.
Neither will Meghan Markle.
Prince Harry might be a confirmed guest, but his girlfriend of one year - and if rumours are to be believed, a future princess, won't be in attendance in light of Pippa's 'no ring, no bring' rule. Only wives and fiancées were added to the guestlist.
The bride and groom will be jetting to James' parents plush hotel in St Barts - Eden Rock before the big day.
The couple are rumoured to be jetting out to the Caribbean before their big day, where they often holiday, to ensure Pippa has a perfect golden tan.
Royals won't be the only VIP guests in attendance.
Tennis star Roger Federer and adventurer Ben Fogle are both expected to attend.
It will be a party to remember.
The Middletons made their fortune with their Party Pieces company and Carole is said to be thrilled being more hands-on with Pippa's wedding in comparison to Kate's - which was largely organised by the palace as it was a royal occasion.
