What a thoughtful gesture! This must mean the world to them!
While many famous folks are doing all they can to secure an invite to the upcoming Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, many of the bride-to-be's neighbors were reportedly shocked to learn that they had all received invitations to the exclusive ceremony!
Hash Shingadia, who lives in Bucklebury and works in a local store that Middleton frequents, revealed:
"When my wife saw the envelope with the EIIR sign on the front, she screamed. It's tremendous news, a total surprise. We were overjoyed. [Prince William] He's very nice. Just an ordinary guy. You can see they are a young couple in love."
Meanwhile John Hayley, who runs a bar in the area, also scored an invite, and explained:
"It was fabulous and to actually receive it! We’re having a massive celebration here in the evening so I’ll be back for that."
A source close to the couple reveals:
"The family is very close knit with the people in the area. Hopefully a lot of people will be nicely surprised to be invited. It's not a completely star-studded event. Not many people are there [simply] because of the office they hold."
So commendable! It could easily just become a spectacle, so we're glad that they're taking the time to invite the people important to them!
That being said - WE'D LOVE AN INVITE!
We'll be waiting by our mailbox with bated breath! LOLz!
