Gravesend hospice worker Sue Marshall, who was invited to last weekend’s Royal Wedding after being nominated to attend by the hospice’s chief executive, said she very much enjoyed the “beautiful day”.

Sue, 52, who has worked at Ellenor for 16 years, thought it had been a prank when she received an invitation to the highly-anticipated event last month.

As a training facilitator, she plays a key role in teaching young students how to care for the people of all ages that the hospice supports.

Sue said: “It was quite breath taking to be in an environment with all the Royal family - I loved it.

“It was amazing chatting to other charity workers from across the UK who had been invited.

“I wish I could have taken everyone from Ellenor with me.”

Sue chose to take her boss Tricia Wilcocks as her plus-one, and said that they both enjoyed the spectacular event.

She added: “It was also such a beautiful day, the views were beautiful and we were very close to Harry and Meghan as they passed by.”
