Tourists stunned by surprise budget Barnardo’s Royal wedding attire


From the moment that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement, there has been speculation about how they will spend their wedding day, including reports of a tour around Windsor in an Ascot Landau carriage before a lavish lunchtime reception at St George’s Hall and evening reception at Frogmore House.

But shoppers and tourists got a surprise when the royal ‘newly-weds’ appeared to celebrate their nuptials with an open top bus ride around the town and a wedding breakfast at a local Wetherspoon pub called The King and Castle.

The blushing bride wore a classic off the shoulder white dress from with a train while the groom wore a blue suit, all from. But rather than commissioning a famous designer or visiting Savile Row, the wedding outfits were plucked from the rails of a local Barnardo’s store, with the wedding dress costing just £79.99 – a fraction of the price expected to be paid for Meghan’s actual dress – while the groom’s outfit came to less than £60.
