Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, pictured alongside Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge at the first annual Royal Foundation Forum in London on February 28, 2018, have invited over 2,600 members of the public to their wedding.
Hundreds of everyday citizens from across Britain are to be invited to Windsor Castle on May 19 for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Kensington Palace announced Friday. Megan and Harry would like those chosen to be of all ages and backgrounds, as well as young people who have shown strong leadership.
Another 100 of those invited into the grounds will be pupils from two local schools.
The Palace explained in a statement, "This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters and values of the Bride and Groom". (AAP) There is much speculation about who will be invited as guests to the wedding.
About 1,200 of those invited will be members of the general public.
The carriage will then proceed along a route through the surrounding area, ending up back at Windsor Castle, along streets thronged with well-wishers.

However, their sources say Battlefield 2 will be out this calendar year, which nearly definitely means late October or November. Perhaps it won't be Battlefield 2 so as to not clash with the 2005 game of the same name.
Finally, 530 members of of the Royal Households and Crown Estate will also be able to attend.
The Lord Chamberlain's Office at Buckingham Palace is responsible for organizing royal weddings and invitations to the ceremony are due to be sent out shortly with St. George's Chapel holding around 800 guests. Apparently, there's a way for mere mortals to attend Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's nuptials on May 19.
Prince Harry and Markle have gone against royal tradition by choosing a Saturday for their big day, as royal weddings usually take place on a weekday.
In the evening, Prince Charles will host a private reception for the couple and their close friends and family. Revd. David Conner, will conduct the service with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, officiating as the couple make their vows.
The Royal Foundation is the main vehicle for William, Harry and Kate's charity work, overseeing initiatives such as their mental health campaign, Heads Together; Harry's Paralympic-style sporting event for wounded service people, the Invictus Games; and their conservation efforts such as United for Wildlife.
