There's no better reminder of the approaching royal wedding than the announcement that invitations have been sent out. As the world eagerly awaits the arrival of theirs in the mail, people are getting excited over the first public details about the union:
BREAKING: Invitations to the #royalwedding have been sent out, in the name of the Prince of Wales. Around 600 people have been invited to the service at St George's Chapel followed by a lunchtime reception at St George's Hall, which is being given by The Queen #harryandmeghan— Emily Nash (@emynash) March 22, 2018
For 200 people, the invitation will also include entrance to a "private reception" in a beautiful mansion.
Everyone's gonna be dressed to the nines!
A young woman was commissioned to make 600 royal wedding invitations — quite the job for someone who just finished her apprenticeship.
A 24 year old who made the 600 #royalwedding invites told us of her surprise when she was handed the job.— Chris Ship (@chrisshipitv) March 22, 2018
Lottie Small said she was “unbelievably excited” and “squealed a little bit” when she found out one Friday afternoon.
It took her two days to print all the invitations. pic.twitter.com/64QuYpEkRR
The machine she used to make them has been around for quite a while!
Twitter users can't wait to receive their invites:
I hope they have my correct address. Do you know if they were sent first class?— Steven Milne (@stevenmilnetv) March 22, 2018
First my Hogwarts letter got lost, now my invitation to the wedding... I need to have a serious talk with my mailman 🤔🤷🏼♀️— Angela (@zoangig) March 22, 2018
Our invitations should be here any moment! Once we RSVP, there will be one question on our minds: what will the cake be like?
