Bride-to-be Meghan Markle admits to pupils she’s ‘very, very excited’


Prince Harry’s fiancee met pupils from across the country.

Meghan Markle acted like a blushing bride when she told a group of schoolchildren and their principal she was “very, very excited” about her forthcoming wedding.

The American actress’s comments came when she met pupils from across the country after her first Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.

Hundreds of youngsters were invited to the event attend by the Queen and other senior royals including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, and Prime Minister Theresa May.

In Dean’s Yard close to the Abbey, Harry and Meghan chatted to the youngsters who earlier had been in the congregation, including Holly Hartley, principal of Thistley Hough Academy in Stoke on Trent, and her pupils.

Ms Hartley said: “She was saying what a lovely service it had been and her first service at Westminster Abbey. We congratulated her on her engagement.

“She was delighted and said she was ‘very, very excited’ she stayed chatting with us for quite a while – what a lovely, lovely lady.”

Harry and Meghan will wed on May 19 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle and the couple have invited 1,200 members of the public, who will be chosen by lord lieutenants from across the country, into the fortress’ grounds to share in their day.

The principal added: “She said what a lovely day she’d had and we had a little joke about the rain, as we had to brave the rain earlier.”

“She said it was great to see people from all over the world so well represented at the service.”
