I love occasions such as this, which unite Britain, (and the rest of the world for that matter, the USA seems to be particularly excited) thousands will attend street parties, marvel at the precession and many will watch the action on big screens in Hyde Park.

And while we ponder over whether our invite was lost in the post, others have the trickier task of finding an outfit suitable for a royal wedding! My guide on how to look royally fabulous!1) The Outfit:The trick is to look smart and elegant, but still with a fashionable edge. Here are some pieces guaranteed to do that:Refer to you as your royal highness, yes, God bless, simply flawless...Yellow dress: Miss Selfridge, £42  | Strappy heels: Christian Louboutin £695 | Rose Clutch: Love Moschino, £116 | Crop jacket: Topshop, £58 | Skirt: Azzedine Alaia, £1,996 | Blue pencil skirt: Dian von Furstenburg, £185 | White jacket: Isabel Marant Etien, £505 | Pink dress: Topshop, £50 | Purple dress: Issa, £392.17 | Embelished clutch: Miss Selfridge, £28 | Wide rim hat: River Island, £20 | Coral lock bag: Topshop, £25 | Blue heels: Christian Louboutin, £495 | Satin shirt: 3.1 Philip Lim, £510
2) The Hair:
Pretty up-do's or soft waves and curls are the way to to wedding guest hair. Fascinators are also a great way to look like one of the royals! ASOS has a great selection of fascinators.

3) The Make-up:
Make-up should be soft, nothing too heavy, think nudes and pinks for lips and cheeks; and for the eyes, go for light eye liner.
