Royal : The American traditions Meghan Markle will be following

With just weeks until Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's big day, speculation is rife among Royal fanatics about what their nuptials will be like.  

Although there are a number of Royal traditions the pair are expected to include in their , they will likely try to work in a few American customs as well.  

Meghan and Prince Harry's will be a bit more low key than Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William's was, as they're so far down in the line of succession. This gives them the freedom to bend the rules a bit and make their truly their own. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are rumored to be including some American traditions in their May 19, 2018

So which American traditions might we see at the Royal ? Check it out. 

American traditions that may be included in the Royal

A large bouquet

Traditionally, Royal bouquets are smaller and more subdued. American brides tend to have more over-the-top, eye-catching floral arrangements in hand on their day and there's a good chance Meghan Markle might go that route.   

Kensington Palace confirmed on Twitter that the flowers will include 'flowers and plants that are in season and blooming naturally in May'.

These plants and flowers include peonies, a favorite of Meghan's, as well as 'branches of beech, birch and hornbeam'. You can also expect to see white garden roses and foxgloves worked in.

Personalized vows

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be married by the Archbishop of Canterbury, which means their ceremony will be pretty traditional. However, there's some speculation among fans that the former actress and her beau will write their own vows. 

There are vows traditionally recited at Royal weddings, which Meghan, 36, and Prince Harry will surely say as well.

The Royal vows were used by Queen Elizabeth in 1947 and come from the church's Anglican Book of Common Prayer. In them, grooms vow 'to love and cherish till death do us part'. The bride promises to 'love, cherish and obey'.

According to ABC News, the vows have been modernized, however.

In 2000, they were changed to: 'I, (bride/broom name), take you, (groom/bride name) to be my wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part.'

Princess Diana omitted the word 'obey' from her vows at her to Prince Charles in 1981. Kate Middleton followed in her footsteps in 2011 and Meghan will likely do the same. 

Adult bridesmaids

Traditionally, bridesmaids at Royal weddings are children. The maid of honor and best man are the only adult members of the party.

While Princess Charlotte and other young members of the Royal family will likely be included, Meghan is expected to invite friends of hers to be bridesmaids as well. This is a tradition among American brides.

Kate Middleton will probably not be one of those adult bridesmaids, according to the Daily Express. 

Royal Expert Marlene Koenig warned fans of the Duchess of Cambridge not to hold their breath for seeing her play a large part in the

'The Duchess of Cambridge barely knows Meghan,' she said. 

It's been rumored that Meghan's college friend, Lindsay Jill Roth, will be selected as her Maid of Honor. Meghan filled the roll at Lindsay's 2016

Father and Mother escorting her down the aisle

At traditional American weddings, the father of the bride escorts her down the aisle. Meghan Markle is close to her father, despite the fact that he and her mother, Doria Ragland, are divorced and he lives in Mexico.

It's been rumored that she'll have her father
