Royal wedding invitations
« on: February 18, 2011, 02:57:29 PM »
Does anyone know where I can see a picture of the William & Kate invitation?  I'm very interested in their wedding, I'd just like to see what it looks like.

Very cool!

Again this may be a silly question from an American, but what does the ER mean under the crown at the heading of the invitation? Elizabeth?  (I can't tell if there's a smaller letter or symbol between the E and R.)

"Elizabeth Regina" - basically: "Lizzie, t'Queen". :)

^^ Posted what I was about to :) If the Monarch is male, it becomes "Rex" instead of "Regina".

"Royal Highness Prince William of Wales KG"

What does the KG mean?

Between the E and the R is the roman numeral II, or 2, because she is Elizabeth II, or Elizabeth the second.

Isn't is rude to invite people to the wedding - but not the festivities afterwards?

That makes perfect sense!

I think this is one of those situations where there are different rules for royalty than there are for the rest of us.
