Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming wedding is sure to be the social event of the spring. While we're all obviously anxiously waiting by our mailboxes for our save the dates, we already know one person who's going to be there for the big day — and it's a familiar face.
Ladies of London's Julie Montagu shared the exciting news that she will be covering the Royal Wedding for the BBC on Instagram Tuesday. "I’m actually weak in the knees and even feeling a bit nervous and slightly sick to my stomach with too many butterflies flying around inside of me," Julie gushed on Instagram. "But I just had to share the news with you guys as my BBC contract came through today and not only will I be there on the grounds of Windsor Castle on THE BIG day but from 1st April I will be providing journalistic and commentary services for the BBC leading up to the wedding date! Sort of freakin’ out!"
Prince Harry and Markle will tie the knot on May 19 in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. That means Julie has only a few months to figure out what she's going to wear for the wedding, and she turned to her fans on Instagram for some fashion advice. "Would SO appreciate any and all comments below as to what designer I should wear, milliners (hat makers), nails, shoes, jewellers - you name it, I probably need it!" Julie wrote. "Would love some suggestions! THANK YOU ALL!"

Of course, Julie is no stranger to the royal life. Her husband, Luke Montagu, is the Viscount Hinchingbrooke (that makes Julie Lady Hinchingbrooke), and he is heir to the title of the Earl of Sandwich.
So who better to give Markle some advice on her new royal life than Julie since she also knows what it's like to be an American entering the world of British aristocracy? "It's a bit boring advice, but just be yourself. You don't have to conform to the English ways," Julie told The Daily Dish when Prince Harry and Markle were still just dating in January 2017 (clip above). "No one wants a boring lady. But if she's with Harry, no way are they gonna be boring."
