Doesn't the Maid/Matron of honor plan the bridal parties? Or adult attendant if she's having children in the party.

I always thought that too Pranter but nowadays I think the bride is often involved with the planning. Recently a bride told me all the details of her bachelorette party (yet to happen)...I just smiled and said ‘really’.

I think in the case of a royal bride that her being somewhat involved in planning is expected.

It depends. A lot of bridal party still takes charge of that, but some brides have decided to host something for their friends rather than have them do it.

Windsor castle

I hope her parents get to stay at Windsor Castle. Nothing like a 900 yr old castle to impress one.

A 900 year old castle is definitely impressive but I hope that if Tom and Doria are invited to stay at the castle, they're also forewarned to bring their thermal underwear with them as well. Even in May, Windsor Castle could prove to be a quite chilly environment.

Believe me, if I had the chance to stay in Windsor Castle, there wouldn't be much in the way of discomfort I would worry about overly much. I'd be too awestruck to notice the discomfort.

This is the carriage that Prince Edward and Sophie used in their wedding procession. Someone previously expressed that Prince Harry and Meghan may use this carriage. The carriage is referred to as an Ascot Landau.

That's odd. I just watched the video showing Sophie coming down the Long Drive? So are you saying she didn't come out of Windsor Castle? Where is the Royal Lodge? Did she drive out of that and then drive down the Long Drive?

Harry was asked about his stag and said “I'm sure William's got something up his sleeve.”

In this article they apparently told fans th parties were planned but they were clues of the details.

I believe this is the carriage the couple will use.

So does that confirm that William is his best man?

I don't ever think there was an idea he wouldn't be.

I read it was the 1902 (I think that was the year) Landau.

Some were speculating because when someone asked William, he answered Harry hadn't asked him yet. That was last month.

Royal Lodge is one of the homes in Royal Great Park about 3 miles (4.8 kms) from Windsor and is now the home of Prince Andrew. In 1999 it was the Windsor home of the Queen Mother and I believe Sophie spent the night before her wedding there with the Queen Mum and from there they both, made their way to the Castle before the wedding.

I think she drove from Royal Lodge - along the Great Walk and into the castle grounds that way and after the service, they went in the carriage out the castle grounds around the streets and up the Long Walk and back into the castle grounds.

If you look at the video I posted, it's very clear that she is coming down the Long Walk and into Windsor. In fact, the announcers say that "as they make their way to St. George's Castle... down the Long Walk..." So while she may not have come directly out of Windsor Castle, she traveled a really long part of The Long Walk.

That's all I was referring to... as long as Meghan and her mother and a few other guests like Charles and Camilla, Meghan's mom, etc and HMQ do that route on the way to the church, I'll be happy. I think there will definitely be a ton of people lined up to watch and cheer.

There weren't many people out when Sophie came along The Long Walk - my hope is that this time there will be, as well as out on the streets (like they were for Sophie).

Video for reference... I linked it to the moment they cut to Sophie in the car... https://youtu.be/JfPzQxyfI88?t=90

I really don't get the need to see the entire royal family paraded out for a long drive

Yes seeing the bride in her car, getting glimpses of her and waiting for the gown is great to see. But do you really need to watch Charles and Camilla drive down the walk? Or the queen?

For me - yes - that's part of the pomp and circumstance that I love about royal weddings.

It builds drama. I remember, by the time William and Harry, then other guests, then Kate's mom and brother, then Charles and Camilla, then Pippa and the kids, and then HMQ went through, the drama and the suspense was palpable... it was just really, really exciting to me... and the crowd got more and more amped up with William and Harry, then it lulled and built back up to HMQ and then reached a fever pitch with Kate... just wow.

It's kinda like getting excited about the pre-awards show and seeing people arrive and seeing the fans go crazy... I love the excitement of that. I'm also a sports fan and hearing crowds cheer wildly for epic moments really gives me chills... I often replay events just to experience the roar of the crowd again and feed off of the energy.

That's why I love seeing all of the build up to the actual ceremony. It gets me really hyped up on the pomp, circumstance and excitement of the crowd, and then I get all emotional during the ceremony, and then right back up to hyped again for the processional after the ceremony.

It's the perfect excitement-feels-excitement sandwich.

I hope that adequately explains my love for all 3 parts.
