Maybe it’s because Prince Harry is everyone’s favourite (let’s be honest), or maybe it’s that Canadian actress Meghan Markle starred in a hit US TV show, Suits, but it seems that the whole world has royal wedding fever at the moment. Have you caught it yet? Vote below:
Will you be watching the royal wedding tomorrow?

Prince Harry and Meghan will be tying the knot this weekend, and you literally cannot be on the Internet right now without scrolling past a story, video, picture or tweet about it.
Who’s been invited?
Did you see that Essentials got an invite to the most-talked-about wedding of 2018, courtesy of BBC South Africa? If you’re wondering, the cake was delicious but we thought it might in poor taste (pun intended) to eat the bride and groom cake toppers.
We got a special invitation from @BBCSouthAfrica today… And you're invited too! If you're really excited about the royal wedding, you can watch the whole ceremony live on BBC Lifestyle (Chanel 174) on Saturday starting from 10:15am #BBCRoyalWedding pic.twitter.com/dvsch5gGQ4

Our invite got us wondering what the official guest list is looking like. Besides Meghan’s family drama, it seems that Prince Harry’s exes Zimbabwean-born Chelsea Davy and English actress Cressida Bonas will be in attendance. Mel B confirmed that the Spice Girls will be there too (and it’s rumoured that they’re set to perform for the newly-weds).
We’re a little curious as to what the girl group will sing. What song do you think the Spice Girls will perform?
How the world is celebrating…
One of the strangest (and coolest, if we might add) celebrations of the royal nuptials is the construction of a LEGO Windsor Castle depicting the event at LEGOLAND. This is the first time a permanent LEGO structure has been put up in honour of a royal event.
To celebrate HRH Prince Harry & Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding we proudly announce the creation of our very own LEGO Windsor Castle and #RoyalWedding scene! Made from over 39,960 LEGO bricks this brand new attraction is now on display in MINILAND: https://t.co/p1znbUaPRB pic.twitter.com/Ue1ZPNY2ag

Also, there’s a Lifetime movie to watch
If you won’t be able to watch the wedding live this Saturday, don’t fear Lifetime (yes, the same people responsible for that Oscar Pistorius movie) has already made TV movie about the big day. Here are some twitter reactions of people who have already watched it:
Thoughts on #ARoyalRomance so far:
– Parisa is an amazing Meghan Markle. Harry's actor is great, too.
– Someone at Lifetime reeeeally doesn't like Kate Middleton. I mean damn. Leave my girl alone.
– I love the issues they're addressing.
– The romance is believable & sweet.
