With the Royal wedding just a month away, buzz over whom will design the soon to be princess’ dress and what celebrity guests will attend the highly-coveted event continues to dominate public discussion.
Alongside Prince Harry’s heartfelt engagement to Suits actress Meghan Markle, the sacred ceremony is generating anticipation through all forms of media platforms – quickly becoming one of Britain’s biggest events. While the 2011 wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton also received grand coverage, this one has distinctly caused a frenzy due to the bride-to-be’s American influence.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to wed on May 19th at St George’s Windsor Castle. The star-studded guest list has been the centre of attention this week, following Victoria Beckham’s invite confirmation last night when she appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
There has been speculation on whether the Obamas received an invite after it was reported that the Royals did not want to extend an invitation to U.S. President Donald Trump. However, as of Wednesday, it was reported by Kensington Palace that political leaders are “not required” to be extended an invitation, in favour of close friends.
Although Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau may no longer be attending the Royal wedding, a 15-year-old Ontario girl has been gifted with a special invitation. Faith Dickinson, from the Peterborough area, was awarded a Diana Award last spring. The award was created in honour of Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, and is given to individuals “who are changing the world…through kindness, compassion and service.”
In a tweet posted by the young recipient and royal guest she says she is “honoured to carry on Princess Diana’s legacy…She is my role model and will forever be in my heart.”
