THERE is no denying that Martin King is British to the core and he says he will be among the billions of people across the world who will be watching Saturday’s Royal Wedding.

The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has the world buzzing, with many people talking about all aspects of the big day – from the dress to flowers, family scandals and whether royal traditions will be upheld.

Born in Amersham in Buckinghamshire, Mr King said if he was still living there he would be just 15 miles (24 kilometres) up the road from where the nuptials will take place.

Unlike some Royal marriages that have ended in divorce, he believes the wedding of Prince Harry and Hollywood actress Meghan Markle will stand the test of time.

“He’s been around and he’s been a bit of a lad … she’s old enough now to know what she wants in life,” he said

“I think it will last because they both known what it’s all about.

“They’ll be very happy, they’ll be the face of the royals for years to come.”

Mr King said he was not surprised at the world’s excitement about the upcoming nuptials as many people would be filled with joy that both of Princess Diana’s sons had found love.

“It’s a fitting end and I think it’s absolutely gorgeous that they’re both married,” he said.

“I think it’ll be widely celebrated in America more than the UK.”

Mr King said while Australia becoming a republic is regularly debated by the public and politicians, he said there was still a lot of community support for the Royal Family.

“I think there is a terrible amount of people here who are royal supporters,” he said.
