A YOUNG carer who has received an invitation to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding has started counting down the days.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle big day is now just three days away, taking place at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. The ceremony is taking place at 12-noon.

Hannah Evans, who plays the clarinet in the Rhyl Youth Marching band, will be among the 2,640 people watching the wedding from the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Hannah looks after her mum Hayley who has severe mental health problems.

The 20-year-old was in "complete disbelief" when she landed an invite in April.

The former Ysgol Glan Clwyd pupil, who works at Dyffryn Support Agency in Rhyl, has received a gold coloured entry card and has settled on 'dress six' ahead of the event.

Speaking to the Journal, Hannah said: "Now that the wedding is only three days away, I am really excited.

"My outfit is finally planned - dress number six. I'm most looking forward to the general atmosphere, it is going to be unreal. I am also excited to see all the different guests. It is going to be an amazing experience."

Hannah is allowed a ‘plus one’ and will take Laura Williams, one of her best friends.

She added: "We're going down Friday evening and staying until Sunday.

"The plan of the day is to get up bright and early and we plan to get there about 8am, which will give us time to get through security.

"We will watch the wedding from the castle grounds and then, we get chance to go inside the chapel to look round which will be amazing."

Hannah, of Rhyl, has volunteered since the age of 10 and has been accepted to attend Bangor University to study learning disability nursing in September in 2018.

She is a volunteer for Girlguiding – working as a leader in two rainbow units – and for Rhyl Gateway Club, which helps people with learning disabilities.

Harry and Meghan want their wedding day to be “shaped” to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations - the couple asked lord lieutenants across the country to invite 1,200 people to join the celebrations.

These included young people who have shown strong leadership and those who have served their communities.
