ROYAL wedding fever took over the Highlands at the weekend as crowds celebrated the big day in style.

Adorable youngsters from Cauldeen Primary stole the show by pretending to get married – just like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

Hannah Copland and Kai Turnbull tied the knot in Hilton Parish Church in front of their P1 classmates as part of a project to learn about weddings.

Nursery pupils at Bun-sgoil Ghaidhlig Inbhir Nis also held a royal garden party to get everyone into the wedding spirit.

Nursery teachers Seonag Gillies and Lauren Nicolson even dressed-up for the occasion as Prince Harry and Meghan.

In Inverness, the Never Mind the Wedding: Foodbank Fundraiser held in the Market Bar raised £581 for the Highland Foodbank, with local bands and comedians donating their time for free at the alternative celebration.

Meanwhile down in Windsor itself, several Highland heroes had the chance to attend the royal wedding in person on Saturday, as thanks for their charity work.

Representatives of Team Hamish, Lily Hey (11) and her grandmother Liz Bow MBE (68), both received invites to enjoy the day in the grounds of Windsor Castle. Lily’s parents, Sam and Susan Hey, accompanied them.

The Nairn family have so far raised more than £50,000 for the community in memory of Hamish Hey (8) who died last year after a lifelong battle with cancer.

Patron of the Archie Foundation, David Sutherland and his wife Anne also attended the event and enjoyed watching the royals pass on their way into St George’s Chapel.
