Following the announcement last November of the engagement of HRH Prince Henry of Wales to Ms. Meghan Markle, it was announced on February 12 this year that the Royal Couple would marry on Saturday, May 19 at 12pm. This breaks from tradition as Royal Weddings usually take place on a weekday. The wedding itself will take place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The Dean of Windsor will conduct the service and the Archbishop of Canterbury will officiate as the couple exchange their vows.
The couple wish this to be a special occasion for their friends and family but also want the day to be shaped to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations. To incorporate this wish, 2,640 members of the public have been invited to the grounds of Windsor Castle. 1,200 of these special invitations will come from nominations from the nine regional Lord Lieutenants ensuring that the whole of the United Kingdom is included. This will allow these people to watch the arrival of all the guests as well as the Bridge and Groom and also the carriage procession as it leaves St. George’s Chapel, travels around Windsor Town before returning to the Castle via the ‘long walk’.
In another break from tradition, it has been announced that the wedding cake will be a lemon elderflower cake and will feature the bright colors of spring.
The design on the coin itself features the initials of the Royal Couple ‘M&H’ in the centre surrounded by a ribbon which is supported by four cherubs. The date of the actual wedding is displayed in the ribbon. A fifth cherub can be seen flying above blowing a fanfare in celebration of the Royal Wedding.
The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II produced exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
