It is not every day school pupils have a chance to celebrate a royal wedding and try to set a Guinness world record at the same time.

Children at Upton House School in St Leonard's Road, Windsor took part in an attempt to make the world's longest folded wedding card for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The attempt was being made by Busy Buttons Creative Studio which is based at the school. It has involved a number of venues across the town and it is hoped that the final card will be one mile long.

On the same day a royal picnic at the school saw children completing a three thousand piece royal jigsaw in record time.

The school building was decorated with the children’s royal artwork including bunting which will also be displayed on the barriers on the Long Walk on the day of the wedding.

Headteacher Rhian Thornton said: "We are delighted to celebrate the wedding of Harry and Megan here at Upton House School, Windsor today. We are right in the heart of Windsor just a two minute walk from Windsor Castle and the Long Walk so we are in the centre of all the celebrations.

“Upton House School Windsor is proud of its royal connections and wish Harry and Meghan all the best for their future together.”

The Duke and Duchess of York's daughter Eugenie - who will be at the centre of this year's second royal wedding in Windsor - is a former pupil at the school.
