A teenager from Newport is among 2,640 members of the public to get an invite to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May.

16-year-old Alexander Willis said he felt 'honoured' to receive the invite in recognition for the work he's done within the local community.

Alexander has been a campaigner for young people in the area as a representative of Newport in the Youth Parliament. Working with Newport Bus, he successfully campaigned for lower bus fares for young people.

In March 2017, Willis witnessed the Westminster Bridge attack in London leading him to become an Ambasador for Gwent Police where he meets with young people to talk about radicalisation.

Alexander will join 200 guests from organisations which Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have a close association with, 100 pupils from two local schools and 500 members of The Royal Household.

The guests will watch the arrival of the bride and groom and see the carriage procession as it departs from the castle.
