For those who would gripe that my previous solution would only get "Royal Carryage", here's a solution in text that goes the whole way:
(1) Royal Blacksmith - Smithy - Black Market + Market = Royal - y
(2) Caravan - Avanto + Storyteller - Fortune Teller + Fortune = Car + Sry
(3) Imp - Bandit Camp + Bandit + Cache - Duchess + Duke = I - Ss + Ke
(4) Baker - Baron + Conquest - Quest - Charm + Harem = Ke + E
(5) Warehouse - War - Counting House + Count = E - Ing
(6) Scouting Party - Scout - Hunting Party + Hunting Grounds = Ing + Grounds
(7) Groundskeeper - Keep - Raider + Raid = Grounds

Now notice that (1) + (2) + (3) + Sage = Royal Carriage + Ke, and Ke = (4) - (5) - (6) + (7). So putting it all together,

Royal Blacksmith - Smithy - Black Market + Market + Caravan - Avanto + Storyteller - Fortune Teller + Fortune + Imp - Bandit Camp + Bandit + Cache - Duchess + Duke - Baker + Baron - Conquest + Quest + Charm - Harem + Warehouse - War - Counting House + Count + Scouting Party - Scout - Hunting Party + Hunting Grounds - Groundskeeper + Keep + Raider - Raid + Sage = Royal Carriage

I'm like 90-93% sure that the joke is that DXV = 515 but I'm not sure how he gets there.

Here's how I see the equation:



I have no idea why Donald X. is equal to imaginary negative 315.

I made a mistake, it's 515, not 315, as Awaclus rightly assumed

Still confused... if DXV = 515; then you shouldn’t need any of the other cards or math operations there.

The other cards and math operations are apparently just supposed to cancel each other out.

More hints /what i was going for:
InnInn = ii*nnnn
ii*nnnn = -1*nnnn
-(Inn)^2 = nnnn
sqrt(nnnn) = nn
Inn/nn = I
Interpreting I as a Roman numeral, 515*I = DXV

(Royal Wedding)

Well, it's more like Prince/Duke + Wandering Minstrel + Wedding = Prince/Duke + Princess/Duchess

Wikipedia says she was a Duchess (which I had to google, since I don't follow that stuff)

She became a Duchess when they married; before that she was not a peer.

Indeed; before this weekend, she was a commoner.

Now she's a Duchess. The Queen also, by convention, allows her the style "Her Royal Highness". Though she is a princess by marriage, she's not a "princess of the blood royal", i.e. descended from a monarch, so she's not styled "Princess Meghan".

It's amazing how complicated and subtle this all gets. It's almost as though centuries of tradition have carried forward through multiple nations and dynasties. (-8
