The feeling’s nuptial

Greeting card publishers large and small have flexed their creative muscles to come up with some wonderful wedding cards for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who tie the knot on Saturday (May 19).

PG Buzz has already shared some of the earlybird creations, but the Royal couple are being inundated with specially designed greeting cards, having been prodded to send one to Kensington Place by the GCA’s ceo Sharon Little. “The UK greeting card industry leads the world in design. The is one event when we can really show our pre-eminence!” inspired Sharon. “Those publishers or retailers for that matter who have not sent a card yet to the Palace, there is still time!”

As Words ‘n’ Wishes’ studio artist Kate Hughes commented about the card she created: “Every girl loves to feel like a princess! (although most days I feel more like a frog!) I may start wearing my crown every day to work!”
