Royal Wedding Invitations Have Been Sent — Here's Who We Know's Invited So Far
Things are getting real now for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
On Thursday, Kensington Palace announced in a tweet that the invitations to Prince Harry and Meghan’s May 19 wedding have been sent out. That means your chances of getting onto the guest list are over, sorry.
“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,” the tweet read.
As to who did make the guest list, that’s a pretty highly protected secret. We can guess that the entire royal family will be there including Prince Harry’s grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, his father and step-mother, Prince Charles and Camilla, his brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, along with their adorable children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. We will simply have to wait and see if Prince William and Kate’s third child, who is due any day now, will make an appearance.
Beyond the family, Prince Harry and Meghan also invited 2,460 members of the public to attend at least a portion of their big day.
As the couple shared, the lucky members of the public who score an invite will be able to watch the bride, groom, and guests arrive to and depart from the ceremony at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, including the carriage procession following the couple’s “I do.”
There is also speculation that a few very special British citizens will be on-hand for the day. As Mel B alluded to in an interview earlier this month, the Spice Girls have not only been invited to attend the wedding, but Scary, Sporty, Baby, Posh and Ginger may actually be performing at the bash.
“I’m going,” Mel B said while making an appearance on The Real. According to Mel B, the royal wedding invitation was “proper,” but she wouldn’t delve into more detail.
While the royal wedding ceremony will be televised for the world to see, we seriously hope someone sneaks out some footage from this epic-sounding reception.
