Done and Dusted: Harry and Meghan’s Wedding Invitations Have Been Sent

Invitations to the wedding of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle have been issued in the name of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.

Around 600 people are said to be invited to the service at St George’s Chapel.

All 600 guests have also been invited to the lunchtime reception at St George’s Hall, which is being given by The Queen.

Later that evening, around 200 guests invited to the private reception given by Prince Charles at Frogmore House.

The invitations, posted this week, were produced by Barnard & Westwood. The company has held a Royal Warrant for Printing & Bookbinding since 1985.

It became one of the privileged few to be granted a second Royal Warrant for Printing by The Prince of Wales in 2012.

“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. We are incredibly honoured 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,” commented Austen Kopley, Managing Director, Barnard & Westwood.

The invitation is die-stamped in gold and then burnished. The text of the invitation is also die-stamped.

The edges of the invitation are bevelled then gilded.

The invitation features The Three Feather Badge of The Prince of Wales.

The names of guests are added later by a calligraphy printer.
