The wedding of the year is almost here! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding invitations have been sent, and Kensington Palace revealed the design that went out to roughly 600 guests. The cards are beautiful, of course, and we have a feeling that they won’t get many declines.
We’ve been eagerly awaiting the royal wedding ever since Prince Harry proposed to Meghan, which happened during a typical, cozy night indoors. “It was a really nice moment, it was just the two of us and I think managed to catch her by surprise as well,” Harry said during their first post-engagement televised interview with BBC.
The wedding will take place at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, and according to E! News, Queen Elizabeth II will be hosting a reception around lunchtime.
Barnard & Westwood, a company that’s been linked to the royal family since the ’80s, created the special invitations.”They feature the Three-Feathered Badge of the Prince of Wales printed in gold ink,” the official Kensington Palace Twitter account explained. The cards’ gold borders have also been gilded and beveled for that elegant royal look.
Kensington Palace shared more information about how the invites were made, as well as who made them — which is an interesting detail.
Fans of the royal family noted that on the invites, Meghan Markle didn’t use her full name, Rachel Meghan Markle. But to be fair, Prince Harry didn’t use his — Henry Charles Albert David — either.
Of course, many people replied to ask whether they should be anxiously waiting by their mailboxes.
As much as we’d love to be there in person, the May 19th wedding will likely be televised like Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, and that’s good enough for us.
