A charity in Essex is set to benefit from the Royal Wedding after a visit in 2017 by Prince Harry.

The Wilderness Foundation near Chelmsford aims to set young people on an entirely new path. Through a range of programmes young people with social, family and personal problems are helped to regain their confidence by spending time in the natural environment.

The charity is one of seven selected by the prince and Meghan Markle to receive Royal Wedding donations instead of gifts to the couple.

Instead of asking guests to bring presents when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married at Windsor they've chosen seven charities for people to donate to.

One of those selected was the charity Scotty's Little Soldiers based in King's Lynn in Norfolk.

It was founded by war widow Nikki Scott after her husband and father to her two children, Corporal Lee Scott, was killed in Afghanistan in 2009.

Since then the charity's helped hundreds of families in similar circumstances.
