I’ll be watching on the telly, says Theresa
THERESA May is looking forward to watching the royal wedding, Downing Street said yesterday.
For security reasons, it is not known whether she will attend a wedding party or watch the event at home on television.
But a Downing Street spokesman said the Prime Minister would be watching Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day live, adding: ‘She is definitely planning to watch it.’
By contrast, Jeremy Corbyn is too busy, it has been reported.
The Labour leader, who is a lifelong republican, has wished Harry and Meghan well, but a Labour spokesman confirmed he would not watch the event live.
Instead, he will be speaking at a ‘state of the economy’ conference organised by Labour.
The spokesman said: ‘He wishes them all the best and he is a particular admirer of the work Prince Harry and Prince William have done in relation to mental health issues.’
On Wednesday, Mrs May – who has yet to meet Miss Markle – praised Prince Harry for his ‘tireless work’ on issues concerning mental health and veterans.
