Britain’s royal wedding invitations have all been printed and sent,a young girl who survived a horrific suicide attack last year is among the lucky ones who received a personal invitation.I was speechless, I don’t know what to say, I was speechless.At first, the 12-year-old Amelia thought it was a joke.I was just like it’s super messing with me but then like as we got into further detail we was like this is genuine.
Amelia’s mother Elisa Newton had planned it out months ago. I nominated Amelia few months ago with my sister and then got an email on Thursday night and it was quite late and I was absolutely I just can’t believe it.I then gave Amelia the phone and she had no idea until that point.
The excitement started in November after Prince Harry and American TV star Meghan Markle flashed an engagement ring and posed for the media at Sunken Garden, the prince’s official residence in Kensington Palace.In contrast, Newton says it’s been a difficult time for her daughter ever since the Manchester attack.She’s been through a lot, she has to overcome it a rough couple of years.
Last May the country paid tribute to the victims and survivors of the suicide bombing that killed 22 people during a concert at the Manchester Arena by American singer Ariana Grande.But now almost year later Amelia has something exciting to look forward to when she becomes one of the guest fortunate enough to witness the historic marriage of a prince and a princess at Windsor Castle next month.
