5 Bizarre Rules for the Royal Wedding
If you live under a rock, the royal wedding is this weekend! And if your invitation got lost in the mail don't worry, attending a royal wedding has A LOT of rules. Meghan and Harry issued a seven-page instruction guide on how one should conduct themselves that day.
Tonight Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle attended a reception to celebrate female empowerment, which is being hosted by the Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson. This event marks the launch of 'Platform for Girls Education', a campaign designed to encourage all Commonwealth countries to commit to providing 12 years of quality education for all girls. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle met guests from organisations who are supporting the aim to provide quality education to girls across the Commonwealth. #CHOGM2018 📸PA
- Guests are reportedly to use the bathroom between 9 and 11 a.m. the morning of the wedding, as "there are very limited toilet facilities in St. George’s Chapel."
- For those planning to bring gifts — even though the royals asked you not to! — the rules state arrangements must be made to have the presents delivered to the family home, not to the wedding itself.
- All those attending the private proceedings of the day must "surrender mobile telephones and any devices used for image capture" ahead of time (...duh).
- Also ummmm "no swords." (What about those little ones that go in sandwiches though?)
- Passports are a must, though,
and hats are encouraged! (Of course)
