Kate Middleton shocked royal fans with her wedding makeup in 2011, as shortly after she tied the knot with Prince William news broke she'd opted to do her own makeup for her nuptials.

Mulroney, a stylist based in Toronto, has been Meghan's closest friend in recent years and it was rumoured she would be chosen as maid of honour on the day before the palace announced the bride will only have younger bridesmaids, a royal tradition.

And now it's been revealed Meghan Markle is planning to also ditch professional help when she marries Prince Harry in May 2018.

A separate figure of Meghan is also being unveiled at Madame Tussauds' in New York City to mark the first time a U.S. citizen has joined the royal family in 80 years.

In addition to the morning broadcast, CBS News will also present a two-hour primetime special called "Royal Romance: The Marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle", which will air Saturday, May 19 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Meghan Markle and her mother Doria Radlan watch the closing ceremonies for the Invictus Games in Toronto, Ontario, September 30, 2017.

The wedding takes place on May 19 - the same date as the the 2018 FA Cup Final.

"Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion", the press secretary said in a statement on Friday, May 4. This marks an slight difference from the 2011 royal wedding, where Kate Middleton was accompanied by her father in the auto on the way to Westminster Abbey.

While Kensington Palace doesn't comment on tabloid reports, Gossip Cop did reach out to a royal staffer regarding Star's recent report claiming that Markle has lost a dramatic amount of weight in the run up to her wedding.

Markle reportedly just saw her mother last month, when she flew home to Los Angeles to spend time with Ragland and talk wedding planning.
