All the rules Harry and Meghan Markle’s guests had to follow at Royal Wedding

It was the biggest wedding since 2011 – but if you got the invite, you also got a long set of rules and regulations.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle couldn't leave anything to chance when they said 'I do' in 2018.

Their big day attracted a host of big names, including the Beckhams, George Clooney, Serena Williams, Idris Elba and Oprah Winfrey.

But even the megastars had to play ball.

Not everyone could attend the evening do – but those who did quickly found it came with an agreement.

The guests who got those very special invitations had to follow a lot of very, very strict rules.

It allowed the couple to ensure their celebrations were completely private – and they aren't the only high profile pair to make such demands.

Everyone was sent a seven-page instructions book, detailing exactly what they needed to do.

It also outlined the things that were banned at the bash.

When guests arrived at the evening reception they had to "surrender mobile telephones and any devices used for image capture".

Bulky bags were not allowed in, and the dress code was also sent out as part of the invitation.

It asked men to wear either a dress uniform, morning coat or lounge suit. Women, meanwhile, had to pick a day dress and a hat.

Perhaps the strangest prohibited item the couple felt they needed to list was 'swords'.

Prince Harry and Meghan also requested people not to wear medals on their big day.

They asked that guests didn't buy them any gifts for their wedding – instead asking they donate on their behalf to one of seven chosen charities.

Meghan and Harry invited 2,640 members of the public to watch them arrive at Windsor Castle.

600 guests attended the ceremony.
