Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding invitations have been sent!
Kensington Palace said on Thursday, two months before they will tie the knot, that the invites "have been issued in the name of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales" and also shared a photo of several of them.
About 600 people have been invited to their wedding ceremony, which will take place at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle—a venue that had already been announced, and to a lunchtime reception at St George's Hall, hosted by Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. In addition, around 200 guests have been invited to a private reception at Frogmore House, hosted by the Prince of Wales.
Barnard & Westwood, a printing company that has worked with the royal family since 1985, produced the invitations, which were die-stamped in gold and then burnished, and contain beveled and gilded edges that allow the gold border to be viewed when looking straight down, as opposed to just being visible from the sides. The invitation features The Three Feather Badge of The Prince of Wales on top and black text. The guests' names were added later by a calligraphy printer.
"His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales...requests the pleasure of the company of ______ at the marriage of his royal highness Prince Henry of Wales with Ms. Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle on Saturday, 19th May 2018 at 12 noon followed by a reception at Windsor Castle," the invitation states.
It also reads, "Dress: Uniform. Morning coat or lounge suit, day dress with hat."
"The wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle will be a truly special occasion and we are thrilled to be able to create equally special invitations for their guests, said Barnard & Westwood Managing Director Austen Kopley. "We are incredibly honored to continue our longstanding work for The Royal Family, and to be involved in such an important moment for the couple and their family and friends."
Kensington Palace has not released any names on their wedding guest list.
Harry and Meghan announced their engagement in November and are set to tie the knot on May 19.
