Royal Wedding: Hever Castle marks it with a treat for those called Harry and Meghan

By Angela Cole

Sit back and relax for free as you watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot in some royal surroundings.

Hever Castle & Gardens is offering free entry to anyone called Harry or Meghan or Megan on Saturday, May 19 as part of its celebrations for the Royal Wedding.

Visitors will also be able to watch the wedding as it is held at Windsor Castle at noon on a large TV in the Moat Restaurant.

The union flag will be flying from the castle to mark the special day and there will be a commemorative elderflower and lemon flavoured cupcake topped with white chocolate mascarpone on sale in the restaurants, based on the flavours of Harry and Meghan’s wedding cake.

The former childhood home of Anne Boleyn usually does something to mark the date each year as it is also the anniversary of the execution of Henry VIII’s wife - but this year happier times in Anne’s life will be celebrated.

Visitors can find out more information about the replica of the marriage clock which Henry gave to Anne on their wedding day as well as the tapestry in the Book of Hours room depicting the marriage of Princess Mary Rose to Louis XII which Anne and her sister Mary may have attended.

Visitors with the names Harry or Meghan/Megan will need to bring photographic ID (passport or driving licence) to claim free entry. For details visit hevercastle.co.uk
