Wedding bells will be ring­ing on Satur­day as Prince Harry and his fi­ancée Meghan Markle tie the knot in Wind­sor.

And Scar­bor­ough’s Char­lie Davies and his mum Natalie will be head­ing down to Wind­sor Cas­tle as part of 2,640 mem­bers of the pub­lic in­vited to their big day. Char­lie, 16, is a Lord Lieu­tenant cadet.

For the rest of Scar­bor­ough there will be ways to cel­e­brate the royal oc­ca­sion. Re­tired peo­ple in Scar­bor­ough are in­vited to join home­own­ers at Alder View Court Re­tire­ment Liv­ing de­vel­op­ment in Newby Farm Road, to raise a toast for the royal cou­ple at a cel­e­bra­tory event on Satur­day.

A Cham­pagne brunch will take place from 11am to 2pm.

For the younger gen­er­a­tion, there will be a chil­dren’s ‘make and take’ at Scar­bor­ough’s re­vamped Mar­ket Hall on the day.

Chil­dren from the age of three will be able to cel­e­brate by cre­at­ing their own crowns, tiaras, flags and bunting. The event runs from 10am to 2pm and is free to at­tend.

There will be a garden party in East­field on the big day. Shortly after the happy cou­ple tie the knot, the party in the grounds of Holy Na­tiv­ity Church, off West­way, will get into full swing.

“Street par­ties used to bring com­mu­ni­ties to­gether and that’s what our party will be about,” said cu­rate the Rev Mary Jobling. “They are a won­der­ful tra­di­tion.” There will be an Amer­i­can BBQ and an English tea, non-al­co­holic drinks, dec­o­ra­tions and party games start­ing at 2.30pm.

The royal cou­ple have in­vited 600 guests, with an ex­tra 200 at the even­ing re­cep­tion.
