Kensington Palace said Thursday that invitations for the royal wedding between Prince Harry and his American fiancée Meghan Markle have been dispatched.
Some 600 people have been invited to the May 19 nuptials at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. All 600 have also been invited to a lunchtime reception given by Queen Elizabeth II at St George’s Hall.
The invitations, which are beveled and gilded in gold along the edges, feature Prince Charles’ three-feather badge. They were made by Barnard & Westwood, which has held the Royal Warrant for printing and bookbinding since 1985.

Britain’s Prince Harry and his American fiancée, Meghan Markle, have chosen a London florist beloved of the fashion industry to arrange the flower decorations for their royal wedding in late spring, Kensington Palace said Sunday.
Philippa Craddock, whose client list includes designer Alexander McQueen and British Vogue magazine, will use seasonal blooms from around Windsor to decorate the ceremony venue, including white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves.
The May 19 wedding of Queen Elizabeth’s grandson, fifth in line to the throne, and Markle, star of the U.S. TV legal drama “Suits,” will be at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
After the wedding, the flowers will be distributed to charities.
Harry, 33, and Markle, 36, have invited 600 guests to their wedding, although the names of the guests are still secret.
More than 2,500 members of the public and figures from charities the couple support are invited to watch the arrivals of the bride and groom and their guests, and to see them depart on a carriage procession around Windsor after the ceremony. VOA
