AN Evesham bride and groom are sharing their happy day with a very well-known couple.

Sarah Holgate, from Evesham and Jay Balchin will be tying the knot on May 19 - the same day as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The couple will be given their own royal welcome at Coombe Abbey Hotel, which is where they will be celebrating their ‘I dos’ with friends and family.

Miss Holgate, 29 and Mr Balchin, 27 said it was a pleasant surprise when the Royal couple announced their wedding and a lovely coincidence.

“We had the date sorted and booked Coombe Abbey back in 2016, so when Prince Harry and Meghan announced their date we got so many texts from family and friends, but luckily no one has received clashing invitations,” said Miss Holgate.

“But it is a fantastic coincidence and it will be a lovely story to tell that our wedding day was on the same day as Prince Harry and Meghan - we definitely won’t forget the date that’s for sure.”
