With the royal wedding just months away, father-of-the-groom Prince Charles accepted a present for the engaged couple. He seems excited like everyone else.
Handmade With Love
Charles stepped out for the day in Durham in North East England on Thursday and met excited onlookers. Brandishing little Union Jack flags and gifts, a crowd mobbed Charles en route to an appointment in Durham Cathedral.
One gift, in particular, caught his attention. The present came from the students of Chorister School, an elementary school located in close proximity to the Cathedral.
The gift was an adorable and handmade, heart-covered card for the happy couple. The kids were hoping Prince Charles could deliver it to the couple.
"Congratulations on your engagement!" read the message, which was accompanied by signatures from several students.
The Chorister School students were lucky enough since the prince accepted the gift with a big smile. He spent time with his son, Harry, just yesterday, as the two attended a meeting for his International Sustainability Unit.
"[Harry wished to learn more] about the work being done to protect coral reefs from threats including climate change and pollution," read a statement from Prince Charles's team at Clarence House.
The Hottest Ticket Of 2018
Preparations for the biggest event on the royal calendar are well underway, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials set to take place on May 19.
The couple will tie the knot in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Chapel. The venue holds just 800 people, in comparison to Westminster Abbey, where Prince William married Kate Middleton back in 2011, which has a capacity of 2,000 people.
Rumored guests thus far include the high-profile personalities like Barack and Michelle Obama, Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham, and even President Trump, who is reportedly angling for an invite. Sarah, Duchess of York, aka Fergie, is a confirmed invitee at Harry's insistence, a move which breaks tradition.
Ed Sheeran is a candidate to be the wedding singer. The couple's bachelor and bachelorette parties are reportedly organized and all set, although details for both are being kept tightly under wraps.
Markle broke many royal traditions thus far. Just recently, she hugged a charity worker, meaning the American actress has already staked a claim as a unique incumbent princess.
The soon-to-be-wed couple is reportedly also looking to engage the public in their big day more so than William and Kate did.
