IT’S set to be one of the biggest events of the year – but you do not need to be royally minted to celebrate the Royal Wedding.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will say their vows in Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel on Saturday.

Here’s how to have a house party fit for a prince on a pauper’s budget . . .
NIBBLES: Rather than do a sit-down meal, leave nibbles for guests to pick at when peckish — after all, the focus will be on TV. Iceland has a great selection of frozen party food that fits the bill, from £1.
ROYAL PRICE: £286,000
PAUPER PRICE: From £1
CAKE: Harry and Meghan have chosen a lemon and elderflower cake to “incorporate the bright flavours of spring”, covered with buttercream and fresh flowers.
Why not make your own lemon and elderflower cupcakes? There are plenty of recipes online. Or Morrisons is selling a lemon and elderflower cake for a bargain £7.
ROYAL PRICE: £50,000
PAUPER PRICE: £7
DECORATIONS: Poundland has you sorted for royal wedding decs, with a whole new range of goodies. The store has bunting, flags and spoons with the couple’s faces on — not to mention lifesize Harry and Meghan masks.
All for £1. Or you can pick up your FREE Union Jack flag in the paper this Friday.
ROYAL PRICE: £130,000
PAUPER PRICE: From £1
DRINKS: Don’t splash out on big brands for your Royal Wedding booze run — pick up copycat labels at discount supermarkets instead.
Aldi sells a budget version of Pimm’s, called Austin, for £5.99. Lidl also has a fantastic range of gins at bargain prices, such as its £15.99 Hortus Citrus Garden Gin.
ROYAL PRICE: £193,000
PAUPER PRICE: From £5.99
OUTFITS: Work Meghan’s all-American style in a stylish black shift dress — I’ve spotted plenty of similar designs in my charity shop.
Blokes can copy Prince Harry’s style in a button-down shirt and jeans.
ROYAL PRICE: £300,000
PAUPER PRICE: Not a lot

Elizabeth Smith from Waltham Cross, Herts, says: “A cupful of vinegar poured into the dishwasher or washing machine will keep them clean. As a kettle de-scaler, mix with equal parts of water, bring to the boil, leave overnight and rinse.”
