'Oh, we'll have to wear a hat I think!': Friends invited to Royal Wedding in recognition of their community work

Two friends friends from Warwickshire have been invited to the Royal Wedding in recognition of their community work.

Tessa Hince and Hayley Ash organise an annual Christmas dinner for people who would otherwise spend the day alone in their hometown of Shipston on Stour.

It is acts of kindness like this that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to honour on their wedding day.

The couple asked Lords Lieutenants across the country to nominate people who have made a difference in their communities.

The streets will be lined, the media everywhere, everyone I know's having a party for the wedding so they'll be tuned in to the TV - and the last thing they want is to see me falling in or out of Windsor Castle!

Oh, we'll have to wear a hat I think! It's got to be done. It's just wedding etiquette. Nothing to short either - cover up well.
