All the invited guests dressed up in their finest wedding outfits and the bride looked wonderful in a white dress and coloured sash.

The wedding ceremony was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, a role carried out by Mr Maclaren, before the bride and groom signed the register.

The wedding party carried out a procession through the streets of Oakway led by two royal guards with guests waving flags and cheering the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Everyone then enjoyed a picnic lunch.

A spokesman for the school said: “The children had a fabulous day, saying it was the best day ever.”
