WHILE Royal wedding fever hits its peak today, youngsters started the party early showing the oldies how it’s done.
Seas of children in red, white and blue, and royal themed outfits enjoyed platefuls of finger food, traditional games and races at their school yesterday and some were lucky enough to get a commemorative gift to remind them of the special day.
There were fancy dress parades at many of the celebratory events, and some schools went the whole hog creating wedding ceremonies with bridesmaids and parents in fancy frocks as guests.
This was the case at Riders Infant School in Leigh Park, where teachers arranged a mock wedding service, a picnic on their lawn and a hat parade in the afternoon for children and parents to show off their posh attire.
Pupils at St James’ Primary School in Emsworth, enjoyed a street party in the playground and were treated to a coincidental drive past of a limousine carrying ‘Prince Charles and Camilla’.
But with another four days off school and an abundance of Royal wedding parties happening across the area today to mark the occasion, these kids so no sign of slowing down yet.
