East Kilbride News - - NEWS - Ni­cola Find­lay

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.”
