A KIDDERMINSTER couple will be having their own royal knees up on Prince Harry and Meghan's big day.

Registrars will be busy on the day with 15 weddings taking place around the county this Saturday (May 19) - including the marriage of Sheila Smith, 66 and Andrew Shergold, 67 from Kidderminster.

The Wyre Forest couple will be tying the knot at Kidderminster Town Hall.

Sheila and Andrew first met online in January 2017.

Sheila Smith said: "He proposed to me a few months after we met, but I made him wait for an answer. I've had plenty of marriage experience and wanted to make sure I made the right decision this time!

"We didn't even realise it was the Royal Wedding the same day until a few days ago, shows how much news I follow.

"It makes it a bit more special, as I have a few royal ties. I was born the same day the King died. On my 50th, I was invited to Buckingham Palace Garden Party with 3000 others born the same day.

"Before Harry and Meghan announce their wedding, our wedding was just a wedding, and now we're getting married on the same day as the royals!"
