Trivia Contest – Be Prepared to Test Your Inner Anglophile
Do you know your British Royalty? Here’s what will make this wedding so different from Will and Kate’s extravagant 2011 celebration.
- They’ll be wed in Windsor Castle, not Westminster Abbey.
- Meghan’s ring is all diamonds, while Kate’s features a massive blue sapphire (did we mention we love jewelry? Sparkle like a Duchess and try on similar pieces while at the party).
- Meghan is an American while Kate is a born-and-bred Brit.
- Did you note that the invite indicates that Meghan has been married before? “Ms. Meghan Markle” as opposed to the invite of “Miss Catherine Middleton”.
- About 23 million Americans watched the 2011 royal wedding. In a few short weeks, we’ll know how many tuned in for this happy occasion.
