It appears invitations are from Charles and not the Queen.

Yes quite right...just pointing out the differences in the two invitations, it wasn't a negative point.

which highlights that Harry's weddings is not as "official" as William's was. If it were not for the media interest in it, I doubt it would be even televised.

It would be televised just like Edward's. It being televised was never really a debate. Same as the interviews and photoshoot, etc. He a senior working royal and 5th in line. It was never going to be the big wedding like William and Kate though I am sure they could have had the Abbey if wanted it just like Andrew did.

Seems odd for the invitations to go out in The Queen’s names for William only to send the invitations out in The Queen’s name for Harry.

Not really...William is a future King. His wedding is a different level.

Maybe the invitations are in the queen's name for the future monarch.

In Sweden, the invitations to the weddings not only of CP Victoria, but also of Princess Madeleine and Prince Carl Philip were sent out by the Swedish equivalent to the King's Lord Chamberlain, but all 3 of them are children of the King, even though only Victoria is the heir.

William and Harry, on the other hand, are both the PoW's sons, not the Queen's. The fact that invitations to William's wedding were sent out by the Queen's Lord Chamberlain signifies to me that Buckingham Palace, rather than Clarence House, was in charge, probably because William is in direct line to the throne. What do you think ?

Yes that's what I think the difference is. William's wedding was a semi-state event from what I understand because he is a future heir so the Queen was very involved ..remember too William talking about how he went to the Queen when he was given a list of people he had to invite and she said no tear it up invite who you want etc.

I wonder...when Edward and Andrew got married how were their invitations worded?

ISeriously, it's now less than two months away. The gold and white invitations look marvellous, and this is getting exciting. I'm going to be sitting with friends in front of the TV into the night here in Australia, watching this wedding and toasting this lovely couple with champagne.

I re-read it and it doesn't seem to say the queen was commanding the person to attend; it said she was commanding her Lord Chamberlain to invite them.

I don't know if this has been answered yet, but the afternoon reception immediately following the ceremony is at Windsor Castle and hosted by The Queen. Then there is a smaller evening reception at Frogmore House hosted by The Prince of Wales. I believe this is similar to William's wedding day.

Indeed, but my point is unchanged.. ONLY HMQ 'commands'.

Here’s something new:

“Ms Meghan Markle” instead of “Miss”....Is Ms in wide use in the UK?

IT is also significant that neither the Duchess of Cornwall nor Meghan’s parents are mentioned in the invitation .
I imagine it would become quite a long invitation if they included all his orders

It's not really significant, as the DOC is not Henry's mother. As previously mentioned Charles is footing the bill, and it comes down to the "higher figure". Traditionally the parents of the bride invite people to the wedding, but in all cases The Queen or Charles has invited respectfully.

IME Ms can be used for divorced women.

Quite, but [i've noticed] Ms being used increasingly for young unmarried Women, whilst 'Miss' is now usually employed in relation to pre-teenage girls.

I mostly see "Ms." used for anyone over the age of 21 who is not married.

It seems the official site has added a section for the wedding.

The invitation is coming from Prince Charles, the father of the groom. In regards to Prince William's invitation coming from The Queen, please keep in mind that William is the heir to the heir apparent.

In regards to the name of Meghan on the invitation and not Rachel Meghan, when it is time for the religious vows, Rachel Meghan will be used.
