Markle’s high school to mark oc­ca­sion with tea

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - NEWS -

Meghan Markle’s high school will cel­e­brate their for­mer pupil mar­ry­ing into the Bri­tish royal fam­ily by drink­ing tea and watch­ing a live screen­ing of the wed­ding.

Teach­ers and pupils at Im­mac­u­late Heart High School and Mid­dle School in Los Angeles will gather at 3am as Ms Markle, who grad­u­ated in 1999, ties the knot with Prince Harry.

Speak­ing in the school’s grassy court­yard, in the shadow of the Hol­ly­wood sign, pres­i­dent of the es­tab­lish­ment Mau­reen Diek­mann re­vealed their plans for the “once in a life­time” wed­ding.

She said: “This Satur­day at 3am we have in­vited the stu­dents who wish to come and watch the wed­ding to­gether in a com­mu­nity, so we have a num­ber of stu­dents and quite a few par­ents and some sib­lings who are join­ing us.

“We’ll have some tea and juice and the fam­i­lies will bring a pot luck item to share.

“It’s a once-in-a-life­time op­por­tu­nity so we’ll just have fun with it and en­joy it and be happy for her and wish her well in her fu­ture life with Prince Harry.”

The in­de­pen­dent Catholic school, founded in 1906, al­ready boasts fa­mous alumni in­clud­ing su­per­model Tyra Banks and ac­tress Mary Tyler Moore while Ms Markle’s smil­ing grad­u­a­tion pic­ture still adorns one of the walls.

On Tues­day, the school, based a few blocks from the fa­mous Sun­set Boule­vard, held an­other spe­cial event to com­mem­o­rate the wed­ding, gather­ing stu­dents into the court­yard to cel­e­brate with glasses of lemon­ade while wav­ing Bri­tish and Amer­i­can flags.
