THE BIG DAY

Get­ting ready for the royal wed­ding

The Week - Junior - - Front Page -

With the venue cho­sen, the guests con­firmed and the dress made (yet be­ing kept a closely guarded se­cret), Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to marry on 19 May at St Ge­orge’s Chapel, in Wind­sor Cas­tle.

It’s not just Harry and Meghan who have had to re­hearse for their big day. The House­hold Cav­alry Mounted Reg­i­ment, which is made up of sol­diers Prince Harry served along­side in Afghanistan, have been prac­tis­ing in Hyde Park Bar­racks, in Lon­don. Mem­bers of the mil­i­tary will line the street out­side the chapel ready to salute when the new­ly­weds emerge as hus­band and wife.

Mean­while, the kitchen in charge of feed­ing the royal wed­ding party has been fir­ing up its ovens. On the day, chefs will be pre­par­ing del­i­cate cho­co­late truf­fles, mac­a­roons, mini crèmes brûlées, and bis­cuits topped with mango panna cotta.

Even though the wed­ding will soon be over, the pub­lic have the chance to pur­chase a wide va­ri­ety of sou­venirs to re­mem­ber the event by. Tra­di­tional keep­sakes in­clude of­fi­cial Harry and Meghan china mugs, plates and teatow­els, while the more un­usual items in­clude lim­ited-edi­tion Top Trumps cards, cup­cakes and one-of-akind Pez dis­pensers, which the sweet com­pany will auc­tion for char­ity.

On 16 May it was re­vealed that Princess Char­lotte and Prince Ge­orge will be among the ten chil­dren cho­sen to be brides­maids and page­boys on their un­cle’s big day.

Con-gruff-ula­tions!

Harry and Meghan will get mar­ried.
