Schools' youngsters in West Norfolk struck by royal fever
Royal fever spread to West Norfolk last week when schoolchildren celebrated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day.
Schools across the region put on special parties to mark the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding day such as royal lunches, street parties and mock weddings.
Pupils from Ingoldisthorpe and Dersingham Primary School celebrated by saying mock ‘I do’.
Dersingham Primary School’s early years lead, Jane Kendal said: “Our couple was Pearl and Oscar, and they were thrilled with their role in our mock wedding.
“The children put down which role they wanted, and we drew them from a hat to make it fair.
“It was absolutely wonderful, a great community event. The children really enjoyed themselves. There were parents, carers, extended family and community members.”
Other celebration taking place in West Norfolk schools included a royal lunch at West Winch Primary School, a street party at Howard Junior School and a royal shindig at Marshland St James Primary School.
Elsewhere, thousands of enthusiasts gathered at Sandringham Estate on Saturday to watch Harry and Meghan say ‘I do’ live on a big television screen.
