Ahead of their own celebrations, residents of the Northfleet care home have been busy preparing their decorations this week, ready for their special celebration on Saturday.

Making crowns and having fun with their Royal Family masks, the residents prepped for their party, which will see everyone come together to mark the special occasion.

The home will be kitted out with bunting and flags, as residents and their guests gather together to watch the wedding on the TV, whilst enjoying a buffet tea and a celebratory tipple or two, to toast the happy couple.

Chris Hutchinson, general manager of Dene Holm, said: “The upcoming royal wedding is creating a huge buzz and a lot of excitement here at Dene Holm and everyone is really looking forward to celebrating the big day together.

“They’ve had a great week preparing for the celebrations and discussing their memories of royal weddings that have taken place over the years, as well as chatting about their own wedding days too!”
