Some School Kids Have Held Their Own Royal Wedding And We Can’t Breathe
Complete with a mini Harry, Meghan and bishop.
Whether you’re a fan of the royal wedding or not, we reckon this will make your day. A group of youngsters from a school in Windsor, UK have celebrated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May 19 nuptials in the sweetest way.
The kindergarten students from Queensmead School, located not far from Windsor Castle, dressed up as members of the royal family to conduct their very own royal wedding parade. And there’s not much that’s cuter than kids playing dress ups is there? Nup.
The procession was led by a lad dressed as the Archbishop of Canterbury -- inspired by Rihanna's papal Met Gala get-up perhaps -- followed by the Queen -- you can spot her by her smart purse and pearls. Will and Kate -- carrying baby Prince Louis -- were next, then couple of the hour Meghan and Harry. The highly coveted starring role of bride-to-be Meghan was given to lucky six-year-old Isabella.
“I’m really looking forwarding to dressing up and being the bride,” she told HuffPost UK. “I’ve enjoyed trying on lots of different wedding dresses but I haven’t quite made up my mind yet!” Here’s hoping the grown-up Meghan has made her dress decision by now.
Isabelle wore a divine white dress with pink ribbon detailing and carried a bouquet of white roses. A taste of what to expect from Meghan’s own bouquet perhaps? A lovely tiara sat atop her princess-worthy up-do. Hubby Harry sported full military regalia and looked suitably dapper.
The mini newlyweds were followed in the procession by a flock of cute-as-a-button bridesmaids and page boys. There was even a member of the Queen’s guard -- bearskin hat and all -- for extra security. Teachers, older students and local media cheered and clapped as the tiny royals proudly made their way along the Long Walk.
If the Long Walk sounds familiar, then it should. The 4.2 km stretch of road cuts through Windsor Great Park and will form part of the carriage journey Meghan and Harry will embark on after they tie the knot. Rest assured that the little ones only marched along a small part of the walk -- it’s a tiring job being a royal isn’t it? -- before returning to school for a group photo and a suitably regal wedding breakfast.
On the menu were cupcakes, jelly cups and cucumber sandwiches of course. There was even a delightful two-tiered wedding cake decorated in white and pink flowers and green leaves. Bless.
Not only did the smiling and waving youngsters have a great time, the celebration also formed part of their curriculum study of the royal family. Educational and fun? Sign us up. And the kids have more excitement ahead of them. Meghan and Harry’s nuptials aren’t the only royal wedding that will take over Windsor this year.
Harry’s cousin Princess Eugenie is set to wed beau Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel -- the same venue as Harry and Meghan -- on October 12. While we’ll have to wait for Haz and Meg’s big day to see how the wedding plays out, we think these kids might just give them a run for their money.
