By

Meghan Markle's days as a non-royal are numbered.

So how does the former Suits star plan to spend her final months before marrying Prince Harry? The palace tells ET that Markle intends to travel for the next couple of months, visiting her family and friends before she settles into her new life at Kensington Palace.

The 36-year-old actress was not with her fiance as he made a public appearance today at the London Fire Brigade carol service at Westminster Cathedral.

The couple will tie the knot in May 2018 at St. George's Chapel, which has only one drawback from Harry's brother, Prince William's, nuptials with Kate Middleton -- no balcony moment!

The only thing about St. George's is it doesn't have a balcony," royal expert Katie Nicholl tells ET. "So we won't get to see that big balcony wave that we got with the royal wedding being in central London and of course at Buckingham Palace. But I'm told by aides at Kensington Palace that the couple is looking at ways to make the public as much a part of this wedding as they can."

Can't wait to see it all come together!
