The royal wedding promises to be a special day for many, but in particular for two teenagers from Godalming.

Anneliese Jay and Freddie Horton were both invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle to share the wedding day of HRH Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle.

The 18-year-old St John Ambulance volunteers received the invite after a recommendation by Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey Michael More-Moluyneux for their work in getting defibrillators put into several local schools.

Eagle spoke to the pair after they received their invitations, Freddie said: "It was just amazing, like we didn't know what to say it was such a surprise.

"He'd [Michael More-Moluyneux] asked for our details and he didn't tell us why, his assistant came back to us the next week going 'we'd like to nominate you for an invitation to the royal wedding' and it was just incredible."

Expecting a day to remember Anneliese said: "Probably an early morning start heading up there, I guess the sooner we get there, the sooner we can get a front row seat and all that.

"Then just enjoying the day really, just making the most of it because it's a once in a lifetime opportunity, we won't get it again, so one we can cherish all day really."

Thye were nominated by the Surrey Lord-Lieutenant’s office after Prince Harry and Ms Markle requested that 1,200 people from all corners of the UK be selected to join them on their wedding day.

Those attending include young people who have shown strong leadership and who have served their communities.

As secondary school students at Rodborough, they identified a need for an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in their community.

They pitched the idea to their headteacher, and within three months they were able to buy and install the equipment, before talking to other schools near them.

They also ran a first aid day in the school to teach how to use the life saving equipment and went on to talk to other local schools about installing their own public access AEDs.
