Who, us, obsessed? Sure, we鈥檝e poured over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle鈥檚 relationship timeline, and maybe we鈥檝e shopped all the labels that Markle has worn since the couple鈥檚 engagement, and yes, we have a countdown calendar to the royal wedding on May 19. But obsessed? I guess you can say we鈥檙e 100 percent smitten with the sweet couple, but we鈥檙e not alone! Two fans have taken their royal infatuation to the airwaves with a new Panoply Media podcast, When Meghan Met Harry.

Every week, hosts Kristen Meinzer and James Barr break down the latest royal wedding news, talking engagement rings, messy buns, and royal wedding protocol, often with guests who are just as hilarious and hyped about the couple as they are. As Barr puts it, 鈥淚t鈥檚 a fairy tale, and it鈥檚 coming true. It鈥檚 the Princess Diaries in real life and isn鈥檛 it every little boy鈥檚 dream to be a princess? It is mine.鈥 We chatted with the charming duo about guest list predictions, Markle鈥檚 infamous half-sister, and what they hope that Markle will do with her new position as a royal.

When Megan Met Harry

Brit + Co: We probably know the answer to this question already, but are you both long-time royal family obsessors?

Kristen Meinzer: As is true for a lot of women on Earth, the wedding of Lady Di to Prince Charles was my first real memory of a wedding AND my first real memory of an international media event. And it was so hard to resist. It presented so many myths about what weddings, royalty, and celebrity were all about. I watched the wedding on TV as well as all the made-for-TV movies, and all the 鈥渘ews stories鈥 about them with my late mom and Nanna. Notably, my mother was an anglophile (and a card-carrying member of the Eastenders Fan Club) while my Nanna just loved any form of celebrity gossip. When I was in University, I was able to do an exchange to London, where I got to see Charles and Di in real life (in their final shared appearance), which was a real treat. I鈥檝e followed the family almost my whole life, through all the ups and downs.

James Barr: William and Harry always felt like older brothers to me. I鈥檓 just a little younger than Harry so when Princess Diana tragicallyleft us, I imagined how that must feel losing your mum so little. I visited Kensington Palace with my mum to writein Diana鈥檚 book of condolence a few days after, and according to my step dad I was writing for ages. Iwish Icould remember what I鈥檇 written.I sang for the Queen with my Junior School choir at Westminster Abbey, and camped out all night at Buckingham Palace for a glimpse of William & Kate on their big day. I think it鈥檚 safe to say that I鈥檓 not just a royals fan, but a loyal subject and actually part of the family. Bow down, bitches.

B+C: Did you two have the idea for When Meghan Met Harry as soon as you heard the engagement news?

KM: James and I are both huge fans of the royal family and were watching the Meghan and Harry romance unfold before the engagement. And, of course, when the engagement was finally announced, we were freaking out. Andy Bowers, my boss at Panoply, knew we weren鈥檛 alone. He knew that millions of other people on the planet were also freaking out and would love a weekly podcast where we could all freak out together. Thus, When Meghan Met Harry was born!

JB: Much like Meghan and Harry鈥檚 engagement, it was just a regular Saturday and we were at home, roasting a chicken, when Kristen suddenly popped the question. I obviously said yes right away. We鈥檙e both so in love with 鈥淗eghan鈥 that we had to share our excitement with everybody else.

B+C: Why do you think people connect so effortlessly with Meghan and Harry? What is it about them as people and a couple that鈥檚 so refreshing?

KM: There鈥檚 so much to connect with! I think for a lot of us, the royal family is this very closed off institution of propriety and rules, where people are being pressured to marry certain people because it鈥檚 鈥渢he smart鈥 or 鈥渢he diplomatic鈥 thing to do. But in this current generation, we鈥檙e seeing two princes 鈥 notably the offspring of the most loved princess in British history 鈥 marry for love. And in the case of Meghan, Harry chose someone completely different than any other royal has been allowed to marry before. She鈥檚 American, she鈥檚 slightly older than him, and she鈥檚 half black. And even though she鈥檚 a famous actress, those qualities make her 鈥渕ore like us鈥 than any other person who鈥檚 married into the firm.

JB: They鈥檙e so adorable I can鈥檛 even. The work that Harry and William have done in raising awareness of mental health issues in the UK has been so influential. On top of that, their resolve to help all sorts of young people is fantastic and it says a lot that Meghan and Harry鈥檚 first 2018 public appearancetogether was a community radio station doing both of those things.

B+C: Can you talk a little bit about why you think Meghan has the potential to be such a transformative figure for the royal family?

KM: We can鈥檛 ignore the issue of race. For hundreds of years, the royal family has been very, very, very white. Far whiter than England. Far whiter than the commonwealth. With Meghan, the royal family resembles the people a tiny bit more (though, of course, she鈥檚 far better looking than most of us). Also, the fact that Meghan 鈥 as a divorcee 鈥 was even allowed in is thoroughly modern. It鈥檚 as if the queen looked at her kids (three out of whom are now divorced) and said, 鈥測ou know what, I need to let them make their own decisions.鈥 I love the idea of the Queen having a change of heart, and the idea that Meghan was central to that.

JB: I鈥檓 100 percent with Kristen here.It鈥檚 amazing to see theRoyal family 鈥渓oosen鈥 up a little.Plus I鈥檓 secretly hoping that Meghan will give birth to their baby in the USA. Here鈥檚 to a Windsor Presidential race in the future!

B+C: Let鈥檚 talk wedding plans! Do you have any predictions on how Meghan and Harry鈥檚 wedding will be different from William and Kate鈥檚?

KM: It鈥檚 going to be smaller, since it will be at Windsor Castle, which only holds 800 people, instead of Westminster Abbey, which holds up to 2,000 people. But it will also be a bigger deal, as it will see the intersection of continents, celebrities, royals, and a more plugged-in media age. Remember: When Wills and Kate got married seven years ago, far fewer people had smartphones, Facebook, and Twitter. Snapchat didn鈥檛 exist. Yes, there was a 24-hour news cycle, but it was nowhere near the level it is now.

JB: My feeling is that this is more of a party. With Harry not in direct line to the throne, he can let loose and have a little fun. I鈥檓 not expecting his Vegas trip or any questionable outfits though ;). Save that for the stag, Harry.

B+C: What about dress predictions? What would you love to see her in?

KM: I鈥檇 love to see her in an off-the-shoulder gown. Something that is classic, but with a modern twist and clean lines. If Audrey Hepburn were alive today, it would be a dress she鈥檇 approve of.

JB: Okay for me, it鈥檚 Carrie in the SATC movie wedding dress, but before all the drama kicked off. Or a Fitz Bernaise like in Bridesmaids? All of my wedding dress references are based around amazing diva movies.

B+C: Can you share some of your guest list predictions? Will the Obamas be there? The cast of Suits?

KM: Yes, I think the Obamas will be there. I think Serena Williams will be there. At least a couple friends from Suits (after all, she worked closely with them for six years). Obviously, Posh and Becks will be there. Obviously, her horrible older half-sister Samantha will not be there!

JB: Ed Sheeran has to perform, or Sam Smith, or both. I wouldn鈥檛 be surprised if Beyonc茅 turns up. There鈥檒l be a flurry of Harry鈥檚 rumored exes in tow too.

B+C: Speaking of Samantha, what do you make of her recent press interviews?

KM: I think Samantha is an opportunist looking for a few minutes of fame. She is trying to ride the coattails of her younger, more successful, more beautiful sister, and make a buck giving any kind of interview she can.

JB: Oh you mean old what鈥檚 her face 鈥淚鈥橵E GOT A BOOK OUT BY THE WAY鈥 older sister? Yeh. I think she鈥檚 hilarious. Make that money, bish.

B+C: Do you have any ideas of how Meghan will use her new position and title once she and Harry are married?

KM: She鈥檚 obviously been a women鈥檚 rights activist since she was a young girl, all the way up to her recent work as a UN ambassador. She鈥檚 also been quite vocal about her support for animals. And she鈥檚 been a voice for the poor and disenfranchised. I see her being a great voice for all these causes.

JB: I鈥檓 genuinely so excited to find out. I鈥檓 expecting Meghan to do a lot of work with mental health, animal, and environmental organizations.
