Every bride receives an onslaught of advice before their wedding day, but very few people actually have insight into a situation like Meghan Markle's.

Princess Anne's husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, however, knows first-hand what it's like to join the most famous family in the world, and offered a bit of guidance to Prince Harry's fiancée.

"She's absolutely great and she certainly doesn't need any advice from me, but the simplest advice for all of us is 'just be yourself'. If she does that, she'll be fine," Laurence told the Daily Express.

That said, he did note that the weeks prior to his 1992 wedding to Princess Anne were particularly stressful in terms of media scrutiny.

"The hardest time was in the lead-up to our marriage, and in the early weeks and months of our marriage where there was a lot of scrutiny," he shared.

"We’re coming up to Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding. They will go through a very intense period of media coverage and it’s tough. It is difficult for them. There’s not a lot you can do about it."

Indeed, we're just a month away from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials in Windsor, and the appetite for information about their wedding is only expanding, even amid the excitement surrounding the new royal baby.

But Markle does have more experience with the press than previous commoners marrying into the royal family. Perhaps her years in Hollywood have better prepared her for the spotlight.
