As the countdown begins to the highly anticipated wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle due to take place on 19th May, their spectacular wedding card has been revealed. 600 guests, including the Royal Family, Meghan Markle's family and a few of the couple's friends, have received the formal invitation to attend the wedding at St George's Chapel in Windsor, following a lunchtime reception given by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
Only a selected 200 close friends have been invited to the afterparty at Frogmore House, where the couple spent time together as their relationship grew flourished.
Printed in gold and black, the invitation uses American ink on English card, which could also be considered to signify the union of The British Prince and the American actress.
The dress code for the occasion is “uniform, morning coat or lounge suit” for men and “day dress with hat” for women. The invitation reads, “His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales KG, KT 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.”
24-year-old former intern at a Royal Warrant-holding printing company, Lottie Small was assigned to create 600 wedding cards for the Royal couple. But the most difficult task for her was to keep it all a secret. She said, “The worst thing is keeping it from Mum, With anything else, she'd be the first person I would call and she'd be the first person I would call and she'd share in my excitement.”
