Young princes and princesses of Yorkshire are invited to watch the royal wedding at Lakeside Village

Young princes and princess from across the region are being invited to join Belle and Cinderella at Lakeside Village on May 19 for the Royal Wedding.

In celebration of Prince Harry marrying American actress Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle in a service that begins at midday, the centre will be showing the royal wedding on a big screen and two Disney princesses will be in attendance to meet visitors.

The happy couple will be making their vows at St George's Chapel, which last hosted a royal wedding in May 2008 when Peter Phillips - son of The Princess Royal - married Autumn Kelly. Prince Edward also wed Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, there in June 1999.  

The traditional ceremony will be conducted by The Dean of Windsor, The Rt Revd. David Conner while the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will officiate as the couple make their marriage vows which will wow audiences across the world, including those watching from the relaxed surroundings of Lakeside Village.

David Aunins, centre manager at Lakeside Village said: “We are looking forward to welcoming customers who want to enjoy watching the royal wedding in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

“Our big screen is returning for this right royal occasion and we are encouraging our younger customers to come along dressed in their best prince and princess outfits.”

Shoppers will also be able to enjoy a glass of rose or frosé to toast the royal wedding in style served from a special bar van sampling Blossom Hill’s new pale rosé wine and frosé, which will be made using a slushie machine.

After the Royal Wedding the centre will be showing the Princess Diaries, starring Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews, about a young girl who finds out that she is heir to apparent to the throne of Genovia and, with her friends in tow, she tries to navigate through the rest of her sixteenth year.

“Our film screenings were a real hit with our customers last summer and we are pleased to be bringing these back for 2018. The Princess Diaries will be a way to follow the royal wedding and we are sure that lots of customers with children will want to stay and watch this.

“All we need now is the sunshine!” added David.
