The lucky members of the public invited to the Royal Wedding

Kensington Palace have released the names of some of the members of the public who have received an invite to the royal wedding.

Last month, the palace revealed how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to involve the public in their May nuptials by inviting 2,640 people into the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the arrival of the wedding party.

Some of this group is made up of 1,200 people from across the UK who have been selected by regional Lord Lieutenant offices. It was specified by the couple that the group should be from a broad range of backgrounds and a mix of ages including young people who have “shown strong leadership and those who have served their communities”.

On Tuesday, the palace released the names of some of these impressive guests on Twitter:

As well as the 1,200 guests, 200 representatives from charities the royal couple have a close association with have been invited into the enclosure. So too have 100 pupils from local schools in Windsor, 610 Windsor Castle community members and 530 members of the royal households and crown estate.

For the actual ceremony, 600 people have been invited to attend the service at St George’s Chapel and a lunchtime reception given by the Queen at St George’s Hall.

Later that evening, 200 of the couple’s closest friends and family will carry on the celebrations at a private reception given by Prince Charles at Frogmore House.
