Take A Peek At Meghan Markle And Prince Harry’s Wedding Invitations

If you haven’t received an invite to Meghan and Harry’s wedding on May 19, time to pop open that bottle of vino and drown your sorrows because you haven’t been invited. Invitations went out today. Kensington Palace Tweeted out the official first look.

In addition to the wedding, the Palace also Tweeted that 200 guests are being invited to the post-wedding reception at Frogmore House given by The Prince of Wales. Guests have also been invited to the service at St George’s Chapel and to the lunchtime reception at St George’s Hall, which is being given by Her Majesty The Queen.

The invitations were made by London-based printers Barnard Westwood, who, according to Kensington Palace, have been making Royal invitations since 1985. They feature the Three-Feathered Badge of the Prince of Wales (Prince Charles) printed in gold ink. Harry and Meghan’s engagement announcement were also issued in Charles’ name, which is customary.

They were made with American black and gold ink on English card and are printed in gold and black, then burnished to bring out the shine, and gilded around the edge.

Lottie Small, who recently completed her apprenticeship at Barnard Westwood, printed all of the invitations in a process known as “die stamping” on a machine from the 1930s that she affectionately nicknamed Maude.

Here’s a video showing how they were made.
