(Photo …With three months to go, Kate and William's wedding plans are kicking into high gear. With so many royal updates this week, it's hard to keep up...so we kept up for you. Here's a cheat sheet of royal wedding news you may have missed:

1. Kate and Wills have chosen their best man and maid of honor. The honorary titles, and stag/hen party planning duties, go to both of their siblings. Prince Harry will serve as Will's top groomsman and Kate's sister Pippa will be the head bridesmaid.

2. They also picked the rest of their wedding party. For the bride, the maids include Will's 7-year-old cousin Lady Louise Windsor, 8-year-old royal relative Margarita Armstrong-Jones, Will's 3-year-old goddaughter Grace van Cutsem, and Camilla's 3-year-old granddaughter Eliza Lopes. All together, their ages don't even add up to Kate's. Let's be honest, Pippa didn't have much competition for the title with this crowd. On the groom's end, the group is equally under age. There's 10-year-old Billy Lowther Pinkerton, the son of the Prince's private secretary, and Will's godson, 8-year-old Tom Pettifer.

3. They're probably going to live in Kensington Palace after the wedding. Despite the queen's open-door policy at Buckingham Palace, William reportedly wants to live in the home where he was raised. It's a cozy little London flat with a 30-acre garden and wing for 30-minute public tours.

4. Victoria Beckham may be dressing Kate. The artist formerly known as Posh told press at her clothing line's New York Fashion Week runway show that Middleton had requested a selection of her designs. While Beckham doesn't design wedding dresses, her designer looks could come in handy for other events surrounding the big day.

5. Ellen DeGeneres should be on the royal wedding guest list. She is, after all, related to the bride. The talk show host revealed she's a distant relative of Middleton on her talk show this week. Distant is actually an understatement: They're 15th cousins. Still, it's a big wedding.
