It will be a lot of fun...getting the 'toy' tiaras too for my granddaughter and I to wear (and any unsuspecting adult I manage to drag over to watch). LOL

I will be making scones too...and we already drink hot tea here!

Sounds like fun for your granddaughter, Pranter! And you!

I have to admit my daughters are now old enough to enjoy this kind of spectacle, too. Depends on where we are, but if we are in SoCal on May 19th I will definitely sit them down for a viewing.

Some report is claiming the invitations are not set for certain people to bring a spouse or a plus one.

For high security risk events like this the invitation will specifically name the person or persons invited. A plus one is never going to happen, it would be a nightmare for security.

That is to be expected at these type of events. Both for security and seating purposes, control of who is coming to the event. Not the 'no ring no bring' idea spouted around Pippa's. Simply if you don't have a spouse or a partner who is known enough to be named on the invite, they aren't invited. One thing to invite a long time boyfriend (like Lady Gabriella's boyfriend Tom perhaps) but another to allow Beatrice to bring a random date as her plus one.

Spouses wouldn't be a plus one, it would be like the Bransons, Sir and Lady Branson on the invite, and so on.



Cant escape wedding cake talk.... watching Spring baking challenge and they have a cupcake challenge. They have to use floral essence in their cupcakes. One is Elderflower. Will have to see how they handle it.

A request by Charles falls well short of a Command by The Queen. I’m beginning to think we won’t see any royals outside the Greeks And maybe a few Germans.

I've heard 2 different reports about the no spouses thing; one is that everyone is getting an individual invitation - so an invitation for HRH The Duke of Cambridge and a separate invitation for HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, instead of one invitation for TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I'm not entirely sure I buy that, I think I'd have to actually see two wedding invitations for a married couple to believe it.

The other report I'm seeing is that the people who aren't getting spouse invites are the people who aren't actually friends or family with the couple, but rather are people Harry and/or Meghan know through their charity work. Which to me that makes sense, these are more "work" invites than anything else.

The no plus one makes complete sense as well. Frankly, I don't get why any wedding (royal or not) would have plus ones on an invite. Weddings are expensive and the expense goes up with every person you invite to it. Why would you invite people you do not know at all just so your guest can have a date? It would be different if your guest was in a longer relationship and the invite was for both them and their significant other, but just a "plus one"? That's an unnecessary expense.

I highly doubt the first scenario because the invitation we saw had two lines. If each person is supposed to get their own invite, it should only have one line for the names. I think it might be that they had to exclude some spouse. They are only inviting 600 people. That fills up quickly considering their families, friends, colleagues, charity representatives, government officials and then Charles probably has people that he added onto the list.

Its a private wedding, even without the queen issuing invitations, there isn't really any reason to believe there would be many foreign royals. Its not like the 80s with the massive royal weddings. Edward and Sophie had a few more but they had a relationship with them. Other then the Olympics, and his recent trip to Denmark, Harry has had little to do with continental royals.

Only obvious one you left off would be Seeiso and his wife. I would assume you meant Germans and not just those related to them among the Germans. If not I would add Prince Franz Albrecht and his wife, Harry hunts with him a lot.

One of the royal reporters said he saw three invitations.

https://twitter.com/chrisshipitv/sta...79813057052674

"UPDATE #2: I've now seen a third #royalwedding invitation. Tally so far:
Mr & Mrs
Lord & Lady
Mr but without his Mrs
So that's 5. Just 595 more guests to find!"

I would assume the "Mr. without his Mrs." is a work related invite which is understandable. My mother didn't accompany my father on plenty things like this so it is no slight. Just business.

Donít quite understand the Mr without the Mrs. Itís not ďbusinessĒ like a charity event they are hosting, itís their wedding. If they find space to invite the Mr, find space to invite the Mrs as well.

Not if they invited members of the organization as a whole. Look at it this way. They invite 30 members of a patronage. If they give them all a +1 then that is now 60 people. Not many places will do that. That is different than inviting a married couple you are familiar with as a pair. Space is limited. They are under no obligation to invite anyone. If "Mr without a Mrs" is offended then decline.

It could be that there are a certain amount of invitations allotted to certain endeavors and patronages to send a representative. For example, Sir Keith Mills may be invited to represent The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. He is also Chairman of the Invictus Games organization. One representative from Help for Heroes and other causes that Harry's been involved in.

To invite the spouses doubles the people and lessens the representatives from patronages, causes and organization.

That's my guesstimate on it so don't quote me on this.

Theyíre 200 people shy of capacity at St Georgeís, I just think itís a bit unfair whichever way you cut it.

How is any of it unfair? It's their wedding, they make the rules. If they don't know the Mrs., then they have every right not to invite. If the Mr. is offended, don't come.

You not including the non guests. There is camera crew, security, performers, church staff, etc...

Now sure how invitations are unfair. They are privileged to be invited in general. You don't get to tell someone how to run their own wedding. Again if the Mr & Mrs are upset then they can decline and keep it moving. Though to be fair no one said anything. It was just the reporter looking surprised.

Wait they’re inviting 600 and not 800? I missed that. This will be a far cry from the days when people were expecting 3000 in St Pauls

Has there been a breakdown of who’s going. Relatives, friends,charity reps etc?

Little secret.. I've been invited, but since i'm not permitted to take my wives cousin [twice removed] I intend to decline to attend.. I'm OUTRAGED that the Bride and Groom won't let ME decide who [or how many] people I chose to take to their Wedding..
