Royal wedding fever is heating up — and not just with the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but because of the upcoming release of Royals by Rachel Hawkins — which follows a 16-year-old American girl on the wild ride that ensues when her sister prepares to wed the Crown Prince of Scotland.
To celebrate my stop on the blog tour today, I’ve got a list of the Top 5 Things to Look for at a Royal Wedding — which will no doubt help you prepare for royal weddings both fictional and nonfictional. Be sure to keep reading to learn more about Royals, in stores May 1st.
Top 5 Things to Look for at a Royal Wedding
5. Adorable Children
There seems to be no shortage of royal youngsters at weddings — and they are always, inevitably, adorable. Sure, kids may sometimes steal the spotlight at a wedding (though, is that possible at a royal wedding?) — but they sure are entertaining!
4. Celebrity Sightings
It’s always curious to see which famous names show up at a royal wedding. You expect to see the Queen and other members of the royal family, but when it comes to musicians, actors, and other celebrities, who knows? This seems especially significant for Harry and Meghan’s upcoming wedding, don’t you think?
Nothing brings out the best (and most bizarre) of hats than a royal wedding. Hat-watching might be my favorite part, honestly.
2. Royal Nerves
Being royal doesn’t mean you don’t get wedding-day jitters. Seeing a nervous groom (or bride, or other member of the wedding party) always seems so endearing to me. Remember this tender moment from Will and Kate’s wedding?
1. The Bride
Look, yes, everything else is great – but we all know we’re here for the bride. What’s she wearing? How is her hair done? What tiara did she choose? And how quickly can everything about her look be recreated for the masses?
Plus, there’s always that warm fuzzy feeling that MAYBE FAIRY TALES DO COME TRUE? Maybe?
Now you tell me: What are your favorite things to look for at a royal wedding?
Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair; a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who’s nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond.
While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince’s roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown–and the intriguing Miles–might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself.
