Meghan Markle’s wedding invites are different from Kate Middleton’s. How?


As the wedding day is coming near, the preparations are taking high pace. One major task in the preparations was designing the wedding invites.

But, there something that we have observed in these wedding invites.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding invitations were shared publicly on the Kensington Palace Twitter account. We couldn’t help but notice that the cards are slightly different from William and Kate’s wedding invites.

As was expected, they are written in a very formal way. They both feature dark, scripted writing and gilded edges. But when you look a little closer, their invites feature a few unique elements.

Who issued the invitations?

First of all, the cards shared were issued by Prince Charles rather than Queen Elizabeth. Also, it feature the three-feathered badge of the Prince of Wales, Charles printed in gold.

However, this shouldn’t be seen as a slight from the Harry’s grandmother. She will be hosting a lunch-time reception for the happy couple after their nuptials are over.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding cards deals with her previous marriage. 

Additionally, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding invites includes some language that references to the bride-to-be’s previous marriage.

While Prince William and Kate’s invite read: “The Marriage of His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales, K.G. with Miss Catherine Middleton”. Meghan and Prince Harry’s reads: “With Ms. Meghan Markle”.

That Ms. actually indicates that Meghan Markle has been previously married.

The royal family is getting tech-savvy with the RSVP’s.

These new invitation shows just how tech-savvy the royal family is becoming. They have requested RSVP’s via email. Though this particular portion of the invitation was blurred out on the Kensington Palace Twitter account.  

On the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate’s invites, it simply listed that a reply is requested to the address of the State Invitations Secretary within Lord Chamberlain’s office.

The dress code.

The dress codes between the two invitations differ a bit. On Prince William and Kate Middleton’s invitations, guests were asked to wear Uniform, Morning Coat, or Lounge Suit.

Whereas, on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s invite, women’s dress code was also shared. Perhaps to help out the bride’s non-British guests. The invite indicated that women should wear ‘Day Dress with Hat’.
