As her wedding to Prince Harry gets closer, bride-to-be Meghan Markle has just been given an official aide—aka a right-hand woman to help with her all things royal.

An announcement was made earlier today that a former Kensington Palace press officer, Amy Pickerill, was chosen to assist Meghan Markle, and will handle any correspondences that she receives. Additionally, she will now be an assistant private secretary in Prince Harry’s office. A spokesman from Kensington Palace said the assistant "will be working on Meghan Markle's programme."

As the royal wedding gets closer and closer, an assistant seems like the only natural next step as for Markle—the Suits star's has more royal duties than ever, and has already done four public engagements with Prince Harry.

Pickerill has been photographed with Markle a few times already—once during the couple's recent royal trip to Edinburgh, Scotland earlier this month, and was also seen holding a bouquet of tulips for the bride that had been given to her by a fan.

Details were released earlier this month about the upcoming nuptials, who announced their engagement in November 2017. The wedding will take place on Saturday, May 19 at 12 p.m. at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Kensington Palace previously announced, "Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are hugely grateful for the many good wishes they have received since announcing their engagement. They are very much looking forward to the day and to being able to share their celebrations with the public."

Besides the news released from the royal palace, fans of the bride and groom have had plenty of speculation as to other details of the wedding. Designers have already created their predictions as to what her wedding dress will look like, and we have a pretty good idea of who her bridesmaids might be.

Only 90 more days! (But hey, who's counting?)
