Imagine receiving a save-the-date announcement for the grandest wedding in decades… by fax. Wouldn’t that be odd?
Apparently, it’s not odd for Queen Elizabeth II. The Huffington Post blogged that Her Majesty did just that for Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Queen Elizabeth II sent out the save-the-dates for Prince William and Kate’s wedding to Europe’s sovereigns…by ye olde facsimile machine, the Daily Mail reports. A Buckingham Palace courtier told the British newspaper, “Faxes have been used before for large-scale events. They are an efficient and polite way to inform people as quickly as possible.”
