We finally have our first look at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding invitations, and they include a sweet nod to the bride's American heritage.

According to Kensington Palace, which first shared the news on Twitter this morning, the invites were made by Barnard Westwood, a fine printer based out of London, but the ink on these cards is American.

"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," shared the Palace.

The cards also feature the three-feathered badge of the Prince of Wales printed in gold.

In addition to the news that the invites had been issued in the name of the Prince of Wales, the Palace shared the evening reception venue for the first time. In the evening, 200 guests have been invited to an event at the Frogmore House, hosted by Prince Charles.

The account also posted a behind-the-scenes look at how the invitations were made: on a die-stamping machine from the 1930s. Check out the pictures below:
