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.
