We’ve all been to a number of weddings in our lifetime, but they most likely weren’t royal no matter how lavish or extravagant they were. Well, ever since the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, a royal wedding has probably been on your bucket list. You may just get to check it off your list by receiving a shot at attending Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s spring wedding.
Among the celebrity guests who were invited, including Michelle and Barack Obama and Victoria and David Beckham, there will be more than 2,640 people invited as part of Prince Harry and Meghan’s way to involve the public. Kensington Palace released a statement saying, “Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have invited 2,640 people into the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the arrivals of the Bride and Groom, and their wedding guests, at the chapel and to watch the carriage procession as it departs from the castle.”

Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments following the release of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle's engagement photographs. The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives. As a way to say thank you, they have decided to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you.
Sorry to break the news, but you can’t be just anyone. Over 1,000 citizens of the public will be nominated to attend based on their leadership and community involvement. Another 200 will be chosen if they have close ties with the number of organizations that the royal couple is connected with, including the Invictus Games and Sentebale among others. 100 students from a few UK schools, including “The Royal School, Great Park, Windsor and St. George’s School, Windsor Castle” will be given an opportunity to see the historic event. Residents of Windsor Castle and Members of The Royal Households will also receive a royal invitation.
In 2011, Prince William and Kate didn’t extend invitations to those beyond the guest list. We’re betting that the upcoming Royal wedding won’t be too traditional, especially as Meghan has broken royal protocol a few times in her public outings. Everyone lost their chill when the engagement of the couple was announced and we’re subconsciously imagining what it’s going to look like. What’s she going to wear? Will the two blend American and British traditions?
If you don’t want to attempt crashing the wedding, you’ll be able to tune in on TV on May 19th.
