Couple could attend WSL concert! (if they wanted)

In a move intended to make the most of their special day, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will wed at Windsor on 19th May, the date chosen so they have the option to rush away from a tedious reception at the Castle to attend the Waltham St Lawrence Choral Festival Concert, which this year includes Haydn's Nelson Mass, widely thought to be one of Meghan's desert island disks, while Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson is well known to be one of Harry's heroes.

The couple have not yet officially commented on this important aspect of their plans, presumably to avoid a rush on the box office by the paparazzi.

Watch this space for further news.
