On April 29th, 2011 Prince William will marry Kate Middelton, and there’s nothing you can do about it!
Well, actually, there is. The Royal Wedding will be broadcast to over 1 billion people and you can host a party to watch it with your ladies in waiting. Switch on the telly, turn on your royal pretensions, open a bottle of champagne and bless the Royal Crown for an excuse to get boozed at breakfast. Even if you’re green with envy, remember that divorce has been sanctioned for British Royals since the time of Henry VIII – so there may be a chance for you yet.
This invitation is an exact replica of the actual piece sent to Will and Kate’s guests. We even borrowed her majesty’s monogram for the design (just don’t tell the Lord Chamberlain).
English weddings are traditionally held in the morning with lunchtime receptions. This invitation might suit your needs if you plan to host a breakfast with a full English tea service.
For those of us older than 30, it is hard to forget the image of Diana and Charles driving away from their wedding ceremony in a gilded royal coach.
The queen has quite a stash of tiaras, which she generously lends out to her family on special occasions. This invitation is based on Queen Alexandra’s Rundell diamond Tiara from the 1860s – one of the most spectacular in our opinion.
