Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding has been in the news since they got engaged in November of last year.  Invitations have been sent out, but anyone apart of a political party wasn’t invited unless it was one of Harry’s or Meghan’s close friends. President Trump nor the UK Prime Minister Theresa May was invited and it’s still in the air weather or not the Obamas were invited. The invitation was in a beautiful print that was made by Barnard & Westwood, which has been serving the Royal family since the 1980’s.

This cute couple has announced their engagement, but that’s just one of the many rules that they have to follow. One of the rules that has been in the Britain’s royal family for centuries is the Queen’s blessing. It was actually written in the Royal Marriages Act of 1772. Markle met the Queen last year during the royal Mothers Day celebrations. The Queen gave Harry, one of the heirs, the royal blessing. He waited a little bit in the year to pop the question, doing that definitely got him brownie points from the Queen. Another rule involving the Queen was the she sends out the invitations herself. About 600-800 invitations were sent out on March 22 of this year.

Have you ever been to a wedding? Well forget everything you saw because a royal wedding throws out American ways and nails in a set of rules that would just make you want to face palm. Brides should never throw the bouquet, instead they lay the bouquet on the tomb of a Unknown Warrior. The bouquet is made of the Myrtle flower, known for being the flower of love and marriage. The Myrtle bouquet has been going on since 1858.

Yes, I know what you are thinking, is it true that women must wear a dress hat. The only one not wearing the dress hat will be the bride, Meghan will be wearing a tiara given to her by the royal family. Which personally I believe she will be looking sunning on May 19. Markle gets to/another rule, ride in a horse-drawn carriage like a real princess. Don’t forget the Royal Wave! Standing on the balcony after the wedding the new married couple will wave to the public, kind of like saying “JUST MARRIED” on the back of a car but much more fancy. These are only some of the rules that will get you through the royal wedding. Now if you ever get invited to a royal wedding, you should know at least what to expect.
