Custard on a pie crust-will it get soggy?

Am making the summer berry tart - fresh fruit sits atop a lemon custard in a tart shell.

All the elements are done and cooled but we won't be eating it for several hours. Will the crust get soggy by then - should I wait and assemble it just before serving.
Thanks.

Your instincts are right.
Yes, custard filled pastry will get softer if not downright soggy (depending on weather and how moisture filling) in a day or two.
If you gave the flexibility, yes assemble shortly before serving.

Should say: "if you have"
