Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle’s Wedding Invites Have Major Differences and They Are Pretty Telling

By KK Angus, 5 April 2018


But as the world waits with bated breath to see the wedding of Harry and Meghan Markle, people noticed a curious difference between Meghan and Kate's wedding invites. This could be a sign of a potential Royal shade as Meghan is a divorcee and the Royal family has a rather sad history with letting its men marry divorced women. So what's so different about Meghan's wedding card.

1Royal Trailblazer

It is important to note that Meghan is already a rebel in so many ways and she is breaking Royal protocols like a pro.

The card basically said that the Lord Chamberlain is commanded by The Queen to invite so and so to His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton’s wedding. The entire invitation was very serious and official in its tone.

3Harry and Meghan's invitation


Meghan and Harry's wedding invites were not all that formal. Though they are engraved in white and gold, it has no mention of the Queen and in fact has the same wordings as most commoners' wedding invites. The invitations are sent out on behalf of Harry's father Prince of Wales and just says, 'His Royal Highness Prince of Wales requests the pleasure of the company of...'

4The seal

The seals on both wedding cards are different too and very telling. While William and Kate's wedding invites had the Queen's initials and her crest, Harry and Meghan's invite has the embellished badge of Charles.
