A non-traditional royal couple

The couple has already made it known that they would prefer wedding gifts in the form of donations to the listed charities dear to them. And while Meghan favors choice, pricey clothes, there are speculations that she will be opting for a non-traditional wedding gown.

And the speculations are all we have for now. Details about who will be designing the anticipated gown and what it will look like have been kept as top secret ahead May 19.

Royal fashion expert Colin McDowell says there might be some nicely done dressing down, including a few sneakers wearing guests, as against previous parades of guests dressed up to the nines.

If indeed they show up looking understated, their spectacular head pieces will be missed. But, more than that, a possible no-flashy-hats rule could cause some friction between Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie.

Recall that Eugenie and Meghan were reportedly not in good terms, as the royal did not think the former Suits actress was good enough to join the family.

Her trip with Harry abroad was also linked to the postponement of Eugenie's wedding to Jack Brooksbank.

These were purely rumors that remain unconfirmed, but royal family watchers continue to look out for a potential rift between both women.
