The dress code is uniform, morning coat (tails) or lounge suit for men or day dress and hat for ladies.

The big question: Will Prince Harry wear his uniform on the day?

Barnard and Westwood, who has been printing royal invitations since 1985, follows many years of Royal tradition, featuring the Prince of Wales’ Three-Feathered Badge printed in gold ink at the top.

Using American ink on English card, the invitations are printed in gold and black, then burnished to bring out the shine, and gilded around the edge.

Managing Director Austen Kopley said he was thrilled and honoured to be making them.

Lottie Small, aged 24, who recently completed her apprenticeship, printed all of the invitations in a process known as die stamping, on a machine from the 1930s whom she affectionately nicknamed Maude.
