Trowse celebrates Royal Wedding in style

There were plenty of princes and princesses on parade at Trowse's Royal Wedding party, with youngsters getting into the spirit of the happy occasion.

The celebration was opened by the village's very own William and Kate - in the guise of Trowse Primary School pupils Maxwell Hewison-Carter and Zarina Duffield.

Maxwell, seven, cut a dashing figure in his smart suit, while his elegant 'bride' Zarina, who had admitted she thought Prince William was 'very handsome' wore a white dress with flowers in her hair.

Maxwell said he had enjoyed watching the Royal Wedding and being a prince for the day, which he described as 'great'.

However, unlike the real royal couple he did not oblige the crowds with a kiss. When older youngsters shouted for him to kiss the bride, he just looked embarrassed and shook his head. His looked far happier when presented with some Lego as a reward for his efforts.

But Maxwell and Zarina were not the only 'royal' guests at the event, organised by Trowse with Newton Parish Council, with other youngsters dressing up as princes, princesses, knights and squires for a fancy dress competition.

Those picked as won toys and chocolates, while all the youngsters who took part tucked into sweets, before rushing off for another go on the bouncy castle.
