Schools in Royston and our villages have been joining groups up and down the country in celebrating the royal wedding.

Pupils at Therfield First School went in dressed in red, white and blue on Friday, and had Harry and Meghan-themed maths and English lessons in the morning. The whole school then had a huge ‘street party’ in the playground in the afternoon, complete with afternoon tea and snacks.

Also on Friday, the Friends of Studlands Rise First School PTA laid on a royal tea party which more than 80 children attended to celebrate the happy couple.

Fun was had by all – with a picnic tea, face painting and to finish up a visit from Gerrys ice cream van.

There were also celebrations at Royston’s Banyers House with a barbecue, live music and craft stalls.

And at All Saints Community Hall in Melbourn, members of the public watched the ceremony while having a cuppa, cake and even prosecco to toast the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
