Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Invite 600 to Royal Wedding. Photo of Invitations Set Internet Ablaze


Royal family fans, check your mailboxes — the day has finally come.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have sent out their wedding invitations, and the photos have taken the internet by storm.

Kensington Palace reported Thursday that the invitations have been sent out.

Nearly 600 guests will be in attendance for the highly-anticipated royal wedding, and photos have revealed more information the world has been dying to know.

The palace has reported that the beautiful invitations “follow many years of tradition,” and by the looks of them, they are definitely fit for royalty.

Barnard Westwood has been making the invitations for the royals since 1985. This year, the invitations include a special nod to the bride and groom’s relationship.

“Using American ink on English card, the invitations are printed in gold and black, then burnished to bring out shine, and gilded around the edge,” a tweet from the palace explained.

Printed on thick white card, the die-stamped invites are gilded along the edges and embossed in gold with father-of-the-groom Prince Charles’ three-feather badge.

Issued under the name of the Prince of Wales, the italic writing on the invitations details more specifics of the royal day.

The May 19 wedding will be held at noon at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, followed by a daytime reception held by Queen Elizabeth II at St. George’s Hall.

All 600 invited guests are welcome to attend the ceremony and lunchtime reception.

Later in the evening, the newlyweds will celebrate at a private reception hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House, a nearby royal mansion, with a more modest group of 200 guests.

Additionally, the invitations reveal a strict wedding guest dress code. Men are required to wear a uniform, lounge suit, or morning coat, while women are asked to wear a day dress with a hat.

While Kensington Palace has still declined to reveal exactly who is invited to the special day, this new information should hold over avid fans for a little while.

And with the wedding less than two months away, there is sure to be plenty more information to come before all is revealed on May 19.
