There is a lot of buzz about Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding as the preparations are going on in a full swing but yet another wedding is the most awaited one. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding has grabbed a lot of eyeballs due to unexpected unique reasons. If the reports are to be believed around 1,200 handpicked members of the public will gather at the grounds of Windsor castle to see the couple exchange vows. In amidst of all the preparations and invitations sent, few guests were sent the letters by the royal’s representatives to bring their own picnic.
The 1,200 members of the public come from all walks of life and are drawn from different corners of the United Kingdom. Interestingly, the couple has not decided the guest list rather the nine region lord lieutenants, who serve the Queen, nominated the members of the public.
According to report, The Kensington Palace issued a statement the couple had asked people to come who have been chosen from the broad category of background and ages. The invitee’s list also includes young minds that have shown leadership and have served their communities. Those people who are not invited to the ceremony will only be able to watch the couple arrive and leave in the carriage.
At St. George’s chapel, where the wedding is taking place, the crowd is expected to be outside the chapel for around four hours and has been advised to bring their own food as there will be only light refreshments and snacks.
People are disappointed with the announcement. The founder of a youth charity in Bolton, Greater Manchester Saeed Atcha while speaking to an international daily said, “some people I was working with were puzzled by the lack of hospitality. “They were saying, ‘How come they have this money and you have to bring a picnic?’ I am of the same opinion. It’s unfathomable.”
Moreover, a crowd of 600 people will be present inside the chapel who will coordinate the lunchtime reception after the ceremony takes place in the castle.
