Royal Wedding at Hope

Two pupils ’tied the knot’ today at Hope Primary School this afternoon as they pretended to be Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. After walking the aisle‚ being blessed by the Archbishop and exchanging rings‚ the guests were invited to join in sharing cucumber sandwiches and a glass of sparking water drink. Congratulations to the newly wed!
