Our royal wedding prayers have finally been granted! Just yesterday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle answered everyone's number one burning question and announced their official wedding date—May 19, 2018. While we're still keeping a close eye out for any new info regarding the next most important wedding detail, Markle's potential dress (any day now!), at least we now know exactly when to set our alarms and prepare our early-morning viewing party plans (thanking our lucky stars that the wedding will be televised).

But Markle and Prince Harry picked a seemingly popular celeb wedding date for their Windsor Castle ceremony, and they'll actually have the same anniversary as three other fellow famous couples. Unfortunately for these celebrity duos, their next anniversary will have to contest with a long-awaited royal wedding. Sorry, guys!

1. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick

The Sex and the City actress celebrated her 20th wedding anniversary with her love, Matthew Broderick, this past year. Parker shared a sweet Instagram to commemorate their 1997 nuptials, to which she wore a nontraditional black dress (fashion-forward Carrie Bradshaw would approve). Although she said she regretted her dark wedding day outfit choice, it seems to have little effect on the lovebirds' long relationship. The duo has three children—James Wilkie, 15, and twin daughters Tabitha and Marion, 8.

2. Jessica Alba and Cash Warren

Alba and Warren wed May 19, 2008, ringing in their ninth wedding anniversary together this year. They tied the knot during a quiet ceremony, which will most likely be the exact opposite of Harry and Markle's televised nuptials. While we hope this couple's 10-year anniversary milestone doesn't get overshadowed this upcoming May within the royal wedding mayhem, Alba and Warren are already in for a pretty great 2018—the Honest Company founder announced in July that she's pregnant with their third child.

3. Rob Reiner and Michele Singer

The When Harry Met Sally director wed his bride in 1989—a whopping 28 years ago! Over the course of their lengthy marriage, the couple welcomed three children—Jake, Nick, and Rony. Reiner also has a daughter, Tracy, from his previous marriage to filmmaker Penny Marshall.

We wish these celebrity couples a happy anniversary well in advance, and we can't wait for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to officially join the May 19th wedding day crew (only 154 days, but who's counting!?)
