It was previously announced that soon-to-be bride and groom, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, will be inviting the members from the public in the UK to the big day.


The invites are ready

The wedding invitations are ready and already being sent out. The Kensington Palace announced that the invites were issued "in the name of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales."

At the time, no names were written on the cards, so we were not exactly sure who was getting an invite. But the official page for the royal family has given us a few more insight into those who will celebrate with Harry and Meghan at Windsor Castle.
