Royal Wedding Countdown: An inside look

HOUSTON – The royal wedding is less than a month away. A royal expert sat down with Sofia Ojeda to answer some of the wedding day's biggest questions.

From the dress, the jewels,  the honeymoon, and the venue. There is so much planning for the big day in Kensington Palace.

The couple has invited more than 2,600 members of the public to Windsor Castle on their big day to watch their arrival.

The much-anticipated ceremony is to be at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, breaking from royal tradition.

"Choosing Windsor, Harry and Meghan are breaking away from the normal a bit. Although Windsor has hosted over a dozen royal weddings in the past, they want to distance themselves from London and the 2011 nuptials and have something a bit different and alternative. Windsor is the queen’s favorite home. We associate her with Buckingham Palace but she spends her weekends in Windsor so having it in St. George’s Chapel is convenient to the queen at 92 and her husband Prince Phillip, who’s 96," royal expert Camilla Tominey said.

The public will also be treated to a carriage procession as the royal couple rides into the sunset.
As for the royal couple's 600 closest friends and family -- who made the guest list and who did not?

"We know for certain there aren’t going to be any heads of state invited so none of the Trumps, Obamas, maybe not even the Trudeaus in Canada. The couple decided it’s going to be all or nothing. That includes Prime Minister Theresa May -- she’s not going. Equally, I think we’re going to see some celebrities at the wedding (such as) Serena Williams. Also some of Meghan’s co-stars from Suits," Tominey said.

We also need to know about that dress! Or will it be two dresses?
