Their tradition-rich royal wedding invites were printed from a classic 1930s machine.
According to an article published by Closer Weekly, the wedding invitation cards for the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have kept a few traditions and also broken a few others.
The Kensington Palace recently shared an image of the wedding invite on social media for fans and followers to see. The cards were made by Barnard Westwood, a brand that had been entrusted with the job for decades.
The card features a white background and golden borders along two sides. The invitation message was printed in black in a flowing cursive font, but the key element of the card is the emblem on top of the message.

The emblem, printed in majestic gold, depicted the Princes of Wales’ Three-Feathered badge, marking that the invite has been issued by Prince Charles.
This is in contrast to every other wedding invitation that has been created during the reign of the current Queen, which would always be written on behalf of the Queen.
Royals invitation cards seem to have always retained the same format with minor changes.
The invitations of Prince William and Duchess Kate, Prince Andrew and his now-former wife Sarah Ferguson, for instance, looked very similar to the one that has been designed for Prince Harry and Markle’s wedding.
The invite contained details the itinerary of the big day, which included the main wedding ceremony at noon at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, followed by a lunch reception hosted by the Queen at St. George’s hall.

In a more private setting, the father of the groom will host an evening reception at Frogmore house, and a list of 200 people are said to have been exclusively invited to the party.
The preparations for the wedding which is set to take place on 19th of May are being carried out in full swing, and fans and followers of the royal family are looking forward to witnessing glimpses of the grand celebration.
