The wait is nearly over...
The wedding of the year is just around the corner and Pippa Middleton is putting the icing on her cake.
This Saturday, Duchess Catherine's sister will become Mrs James Matthews, where she'll marry the 41-year-old billionaire in an intimate ceremony in front of 100 guests at St. Mark’s Church.
350 of their closet loved ones will help the newlyweds continue celebrating their union at the 33-year-old's family home.
And the Middletons are in overdrive transforming their Berkshire Estate into the perfect wedding venue.
Wedding planners were spotted yesterday, putting up a stunning glass marque, where the reception will presumably take place.
The crystal palace, which is said to have cost £100,000 ($AUD173,878), was shipped in from Belgium.
This week, the bride-to-be was spotted enjoying a pampering session at the Santi Spa in upmarket Kensington.
The VIP womens-only establishment offers a range of beauty treatments including fancy facials, skin polishing (we don't even know what that means but it sounds great and we want it) and massages - perfect for any bride prepping for the big day.
No expense has been spared for Kate's former maid of honour, who's believed to have forked out £250,000 ($AUD463,500) for the big day.
While it is unlikely that Kate will have an official capacity on the day - though she is tipped to do a reading for her little sister- royal watchers are hoping that Princess Charlotte will be a flower girl and while her big brother Prince George will be a page boy or ring bearer.
Despite Pippa's “no ring, no bring” policy, we expect there will be one couple that will be delighted to attend the big event.
Prince Harry will be bringing along his American leading lady, Meghan Markle, to the reception.
There'll also be sporting royalty at the dinner table, with Roger Federer and his wife Mirka rumoured to be attending.
For such an important moment in her life, the former cookbook author has undergone a major bridal boot camp.
The doting aunt has been spotted fitting numerous sessions at the exclusive KX Gym in Chelsea.
According to E! News, she's following the Sirtfood Diet, which involves sticking to a diet of 20 foods that activate proteins in the body called sirtuins - which helps body burn fat.
One thing is certain, Pippa is looking incredible and will no doubt stun in whatever she wears.
And punters are putting their money on a dress by designer Giles Deacon, after he was spotted visiting the bride-to-be and her mum Carole just before Christmas.
Commenting on the whispers, Giles had this avant-garde response, “I can never really comment on rumours. Until things are confirmed, it’s rumours.”
Roll on Saturday!
