The wedding date of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is May 19 and invitations have been sent out to 600 guests. There are possibilities of adding another 200 to the couple's reception. The tentative program is that after the service at Windsor Castle, all the guests will attend a lunchtime reception at St. George's Hall. This reception is being given by the Queen.

According to Sky News, a certain dress code has been specified for the attendees. It should be morning coat or lounge suit, or day dress with a hat. Prince Harry is a former soldier and he could be there in his uniform.

He now holds an important rank in the Royal Marines.

It will be a grand affair

There will be 200 guests who will join the Royal couple of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at an evening reception. The venue of this will be Frogmore House which is situated about half a mile south of Windsor Castle. It has been a royal residence for nearly three centuries and was the place where Harry and Meghan had posed for their official engagement photos.

The invitation cards have been printed individually using a 1930 vintage machine. The invitations being sent out for this wedding are similar to the ones that had been sent out in 2011 for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The only difference was in the font used and it was issued with the Queen's royal cipher.

Both Harry and Meghan are waiting eagerly the great day when their fairytale romance will end as they take the marriage vows. It all started with a blind date and Meghan, an actress of Hollywood, is set to become a member of the British royalty.

The wedding cake

CNN reveals that the responsibility for making the wedding cake for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has gone to pastry chef Claire Ptak.

This has been confirmed by Kensington Palace. The chef has her roots in the United States. She was raised in California, started her bakery business in a market stall, and ended up opening a café in East London in 2010.

She is now the owner of a London-based bakery and Meghan is not new to her because she had interviewed Claire for a lifestyle website.

Harry and Meghan have indicated their preference. It is for a lemon elderflower cake which must incorporate the bright flavors of spring and be decorated with buttercream and fresh flowers. They want to share it with the guests at their wedding at Windsor Castle.

Incidentally, Prince William had also opted for a non-traditional cake for his wedding to Kate. His choice was a one made of cookies and chocolate. It was served alongside the official wedding cake which was a fruitcake.
