There are only 28 days until Meghan Markle's and Prince Harry's Royal Wedding Day, something we've definitely marked as an official holiday on our iCals. But leading up to the big event, Meghan's future sister-in-law Kate Middleton and future brother-in-law Prince William have a whole lot going on. At the moment, Kate is very pregnant with Baby No. 3 and is due to give birth any day now. The exact due date hasn't been released, but it's been rumored to be April 23rd—just six days before the royal couple's seventh wedding anniversary on April 29 and soon before Princess Charlotte's third birthday on May 2. So how, exactly, does this all square up with Kate and Will participating in Meghan and Harry's nuptials?
Here's the deal: Prince William is likely to be Harry's best man, though the official wedding party details have yet to be announced. And while in any other circumstances Kate might have been asked to be one of Meghan's bridesmaids, because of the new baby she will not be in the wedding party.

“Frankly, Harry and Meghan are just happy that Kate will be there given she will only just have given birth,” a source told Vanity Fair. “They have told her there is no pressure on her to do anything, they just want her to enjoy the day.”
That's gotta be music to any new mom's ears—especially since Kate and William's other two children will be busy with their own roles at the wedding. According to ABC News, Prince George is expected to serve as a page boy and Princess Charlotte will likely be a flower girl during the wedding at Windsor Castle.
This isn't the first time the littlest royals have been a part of a wedding party: George was a page boy during their aunt Pippa Middleton's wedding last May, where he had a bit of a meltdown during the celebration. And Charlotte was a bridesmaid at just 2 years old.
For her sister's wedding, Kate was in charge of looking after the children in the wedding party and fixing Pippa's train as she walked down the aisle. This time, she might just be relieved to relax and enjoy the day.
