These commoners will attend Prince Harry, Meghan Markle's royal wedding
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on May 19 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated events of this year. Unlike Harry's elder brother, Prince William's wedding with Kate Middleton, not many politicians will grace the occasion. However, many commoners have been invited. The Kensington Palace has revealed what makes these people special.
The couple wanted people from different backgrounds in attendance
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to involve public in their wedding. So, the grounds of Windsor Palace will be open for 2,340 people to watch the arrival of the wedding party. Apart from this, 1,200 members of the common public have been attended. Picked up by Lord Lieutenant offices, the couple wants those 'who have shown strong leadership and served their communities' to attend the wedding.
Deaf child teaching sign-language, war veteran, among others invited
Kensington Palace detailed lives of few of the esteemed guests. One of them is Philip Gillespie who lost his right leg in Afghanistan and now works to raise funds and awareness for soldiers. Reuben Litherland, who was born deaf and now teaches sign-language at school during lunchtime, has been invited to witness the royal wedding in May.
