Pupils at St Gregory's Catholic Primary School in Eastfield today hosted a Royal Wedding picnic in the sun to celebrate the happy couples upcoming nuptials, and Year 6 students finishing their SATs exams yesterday (Thursday).

Following a morning of themed activities in their classrooms, children created bunting and confetti before youngsters spent their afternoon indulging in a tea party on the playing field.

Children and staff were both invited to dress up as a wedding guest or as a member of the royal family before the school watched a mini Meghan and Harry 'tie the knot' with their bridesmaids and ushers in tow.
