In preparation for the ‘Wedding of the Year’ next week, Pre Prep held an assembly all about The Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
We decided that Meghan should know about the Royal Family she is marrying into so found out lots of interesting facts about Harry’s ancestors.
Starting with the Anglo Saxon Kings we learnt that Alfred the Great was the first king who could read and write and he kept the land safe from invaders. Following on came the Normans. Did you know that William the Conqueror was a French invader? And we’re not surprised that the name Richard went out of fashion for Kings as they were all killed…
We then raced through the Plantagenets, the Tudors, the Stuarts and the House of Hanover finally arriving at the present day House of Windsor.
The boys eagerly informed us about Harry’s immediate family including his Grandmother the Queen! His father the Prince of Wales and his brother Prince William.
Finally, we learnt about the amazing work Harry and Meghan do including launching the Invictus games and being involved in humanitarian work.
The finale saw the boys sing an energetic rendition of ‘Celebration’.
We wish Harry and Meghan every happiness together and are looking forward to our celebratory street party next week.
