More possibilities for love in the royal family

Meghan Markle is an American divorcee as well as biracial. For these reasons alone, the marriage has been lauded as a progressive move from the usually traditional family. But with the release of the couple's wedding invites, the Windsor family has shown its desire to blend with the times.

Instead of the usual 'Miss' title for the bride to be, the invite refers to Meghan as a divorcee. She is called 'Ms. Meghan Markle' in acknowledgement of her past marriage.

This is commendable because it means the royal family might be opening up to more possibilities when it comes to love and marriage.

Wait, some couples got just one invite?

Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal commentator, told The Independent that using the 'Ms.' title for Meghan is a nod to her politics and a move she would approve of.

He said the fact that the royal family put this into consideration is a sure sign that it is modernizing.

Another interesting detail about this all important invite is that it is not resping the traditional plus one rule. Some guests will not be allowed to bring their spouses. But this is simply because of the limited capacity of St. George's Church.

Family members who did not make the guest list

However, now that the invites are out, most of the guests who would be at the May 19 wedding would have gotten their invites.

No one has gone public with acknowledging that they made the guest list yet, but Meghan Markle's family members who did not make the guest list have spoken up.

Her sister-in-law and nephew told Good Morning Britain that they had not been given invites to the big event, but they had no bad blood towards the Meghan. They said they were proud of her and continued to support her.

Meghan's half-brother did not make the guest list either and it is likely that her half-sister, Samantha did not get an invite as well.
