Have you been gripped by Royal wedding fever?
News readers have their say on big day
With excitement building for the Royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this Saturday, final preparations are underway for the ceremony at St George’s chapel inside Windsor Castle.
The wedding follows hot on the heels of the birth of Harry’s new nephew, Prince Louis, and the happy couple are understood to have invited over 2000 guests to their nuptials along with the millions expected to watch on television.
Guests will include 1200 members of the public, 200 members of charities the couple work with and 100 pupils from local schools.
The News took to East Kilbride to see if townsfolk will be looking out the Union flags and bunting and joining in celebrations.
Mark Brady from Calderwood, with daughters Lily and Martha, said: “I am not a royalist so I am really not interested – I don’t see them as relevant to how we live now.”
Veronica Coogans from Mossneuk said: “I wouldn’t get overly excited but I will probably watch – more to see the wedding dress and what everyone is wearing.”
Meanwhile, Liz Graham with granddaughter, Katie, said: “I probably would have watched but I will be out – it’s nice to have something happy to cheer us all up a bit.”
And Frank McElhinney from Whitehills said: “I have nothing against the couple and no doubt a lot of people will be interested in the day but I am not one of them.”
