Windsor lockdown for royal wedding
Among the 1,200 members of the public who will be allowed into the grounds of Windsor Castle on 19 May will be a 12-year-old girl injured in the Manchester Arena attack.
Amelia Thompson, from Dronfield Woodhouse, near Sheffield, was left traumatised after witnessing the bomb blow up after the Ariana Grande concert in May 2017. She also damaged her vocal chords from screaming in horror.
Ashley Thompson was "speechless" when she found out about the invitation.
The decision to invite those with a close relationship to the couple but not "an official list of political leaders" was taken in consultation with the government, Kensington Palace said.Other members of the public who have received an invitation to the grounds include primary school teacher David Gregory from Blyth, Northumberland, who has started a recycling initiative and STEM club at his school. He will attend the wedding in the suit he wore at his own marriage ceremony last May, as the next day marks his and his wife Hannah's first anniversary.

Reuben Litherland's mother Jacinta said her son deserved the invitation as he does all the work for deaf-friendly cinema screenings himself
