As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding draws near, fans around the world can’t help but pay attention to every given detail of the upcoming celebration.
When the lucky 600 guests invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding receive their official invitations in the mail, they may or may not notice that something is different about the royal bride and groom’s names.
The beautifully-designed formal invites include the wording: “His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales requests the pleasure of the company of ______ at the marriage of his royal highness Prince Henry of Wales with Ms. Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on Saturday, 19th May 2018 at 12 noon followed by a reception at Windsor Castle,” the invitation reads.
But “Henry” is no typo. The prince was born with the name: Henry Charles Albert David, but he’s familiarly known as Harry.
