Many of the faces will be well-known, including the UK royals, celebrities, and others individuals. But it is obvious the couple will have some strict rules on their big day that all guests must follow just as it was for Prince William and Kate’s wedding. The royal butler shared what the lucky guests should expect.


It looks like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding will be a well-coordinated fun. Royal butler Grant Harrold, who served for HRH Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke of Cambridge, and Prince Harry, said:

There won’t be any mobile phones, they won’t want anything on Facebook and Twitter, royal weddings are very private.

This means no sneaky snaps during the ceremony are allowed. Of course, it’s not easy to control such thing as the Internet, but the royal couple is hoping their guests will be well-behaved. 


The butler also advised not to involve the happy couple into a long chat. He added:

With the 600 invitations, the one thing with the guests is it’s not possible for everyone to see the couple and the thing is if you do meet them there’s a lot of people they have to see and you can’t take up all their time.

The guests should also be aware of how to address Meghan Markle after the ceremony.

Once she’s married to Prince Henry she will then be Her Royal Highness Princess Henry of Wales because she’s not princess in her own right, there will probably then be a title. We won’t know her know her long as Princess Henry because she might be a duchess or a countess so after people meet her at the wedding they’ll have to be aware of that.

But it’s not just Meghan who would change her name. Harry is likely to be granted a new title by the Queen as well. The favorite choice is the well-sounding Duke of Sussex, which would make Markle the Duchess of Sussex.
