The invitations for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding have officially been sent!

Kensington Palace announced on Thursday that the invites, issued in the name of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, have been mailed to approximately 600 people.

All guests have been invited to both the service at St George's Chapel on May 19 and a lunchtime reception at St George's Hall, hosted by Queen Elizabeth II. Approximately 200 guests have also been invited to the reception at Frogmore House, which will take place later in the evening and be hosted by Prince Charles.

And the invitations are just as regal as one would expect! They were hand-crafted by Barnard and Westwood on a machine from the '30s, and feature the three-feathered badge of the Prince of Wales printed in American gold ink on English card.

"The wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle will be a truly special occasion and we are thrilled to be able to create equally special invitations for their guests," Barnard and Westwood's managing director, Austen Kopley, said in a statement. "We are incredibly honoured to continue our longstanding work for The Royal Family, and to be involved in such an important moment for the couple and their family and friends."

The exciting news comes just two days after Kensington Palace revealed in a series of tweets that Meghan and Harry have selected pastry chef Claire Ptak, founder of Violet Bakery, to create their lemon elderflower wedding cake. The dessert will also feature the "bright flavours" of spring, and will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.
