A Lowestoft care home is set to celebrate this year’s most hotly anticipated wedding in style with a ‘right royal knees up’ this weekend.

Britten Court care home on the appropriately named Love Road in Lowestoft is opening its doors to the local community for a special celebration on Saturday, May 19, to raise a glass to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The home will be adorned with union jack bunting and residents will have their British flags at the ready for a live screening of the wedding. The care team has also organised a special garden party with traditional lawn games, including croquet and a ring toss.

To top off the day’s festivities, a member of the Care UK team and a Britten Court resident will be crowned the prince and princess of the day.

Chloe Swarbrick, home manager at Britten Court, said: “It’s been a busy few years for the royals, with big birthdays, anniversaries and new additions to the family – conversations around the Queen and her children are never too far from our lips here at Britten Court.
