As can be expected, there is a lot of buzz around the royal family this week. This Saturday, His Royal Highness Prince Harry is to marry his fiancee, Meghan Markle, and it is bound to be a spectacular wedding. Like his big brother before him, Harry is set to wed at Westminster Abbey. Most of the rest of the specific details are, of course, being kept very close to the vest. As a way of tiding over royal watchers and anglophiles alike, though, here is a look back at a few previous royal affairs.

William and Kate

William and Kate's wedding was the event everyone was talking about when they got married back in 2011, and it is not likely to be any different this time.

The Duke of Cambridge and his wife wed at Westminster Abbey, where Kate was walked down the aisle by her father, Michael, and trailed by her sister and maid of honor, Pippa Middleton. She wore a dress designed by designer Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. William wore an Irish Guards mounted officer’s uniform, while his best man, Harry, wore a Blues and Royals officer’s uniform. After the ceremony, the couple were brought to Buckingham Palace, where they made the traditional appearance on the balcony.

Charles and Camilla

The Prince of Wales' wedding to the Duchess of Cornwall stood in stark contrast to his first wedding. Rather than a lavish and public affair, it was decidedly subdued: there was a civil ceremony at Windsor Guildhall, followed by Service of Prayer and Dedication at St.

George's Chapel and a reception given by the Queen. Elizabeth II did not attend the ceremony itself, but did attend the church service and reception at Windsor Castle. The attire was also not ostentatious, with the bride wearing a cream dress and the groom wearing a traditional-looking suit. They did not appear on the balcony.

Charles and Diana

The wedding of Charles and Lady Diana Spencer was, as one can expect, an incredibly grandiose affair. They were married at St. Paul's Cathedral, and the pomp and circumstance that went with it is talked about even to this day. Diana wore a dress of ivory taffeta decorated with lace, with a train that was the longest in royal wedding history, measuring a whopping 25 feet long.

Prince Charles, ever demure, wore his full dress naval commander uniform. They made an appearance on the balcony at Buckingham Palace and were the first to kiss while they were there, starting the royal tradition.

Here's what we know

The details of Harry and Meghan's wedding that we know thus far are not numerous, but they are not nonexistent. We know that William was asked to be Harry's best man. The wedding is to be held at St. George's Chapel, the site of the church service after Charles and Camilla's wedding. We do know that the Obamas are not invited, and neither are the Trumps. As far as anything else? The world will be waiting with baited breath.
