Wedding invite joy for Amy

Section:  Annan and Eskdale, Dumfries and West, Uncategorised

MILLIONS of people will be watching when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot next month.

And one lucky Annan woman will have a front row view of the nuptials in St George’s Chapel at Windsor.

For Amy Wright has received a coveted invite to the wedding of the year on Saturday May 19.

Her place on the elite guest list is thanks to her charitable work at The Usual Place in Dumfries, where the 26-year-old is a volunteer chair of the board of directors.

She said: “I have known for about two months now but I had to keep it a secret.

“My initial reaction was that of shock and surprise.

“I’m excited to be on the grounds of Windsor Castle and to be a small part of the big day and what is a big piece of British history.”

Amy is particularly excited as it will only be the second ever wed- ding she has attended and she said: “I have never met any of the royals before, and this is only my second ever wedding.

“I do not really have any favour- ite royal, but I follow the younger members of the family because of their work with charity.

“The family and their work is amazing and I am privileged that I got this invite.”

She plans to travel down to Lon- don the night before and will come home on the Sunday, making a weekend of it.

She said: “I am just going to focus on the wedding.

“It will be a bit overwhelm- ing, so I imagine I will need the days rest before and after, so I do not have much planned.”


And before that, she’s got the im- portant task of nding the perfect out t and says she is planning “a few” shopping trips in the near fu- ture.

The Usual Place is a commun- ity cafe based in Academy Street, Dumfries. It offers support to young adults with additional sup- port needs and provides training in areas such as retail, hospitality and front of house.
