Barnardo’s have made the most of the upcoming Royal Wedding by using Prince Harry and Meghan Markle lookalikes to showcase pre-loved clothing around the streets of Windsor.

Tourists and locals alike took a number of double-takes as they spotted ‘Prince Harry’ and ‘Meghan Markle’ walking around Windsor in the sunshine, riding an open-top bus, and visiting Wetherspoons pub, appropriately called The King and Castle.

The bride wore a classic off the shoulder white dress with a train, while the groom wore a blue suit, all from a local Barnardo’s store in South High Street. The wedding dress cost just £79.99 – a fraction of the price expected to be paid for Meghan’s actual dress – while the groom’s outfit came to less than £60.

Professional lookalikes Sarah Mhlanga, 35, from Cheshire, and Henry Morley, 28, from York, were helping the UK’s largest children’s charity to showpiece its pre-loved clothing.

After hailing a cab to get to Windsor Castle, they posed with passers-by and shoppers before climbing aboard one of the Original Tour open top buses for a special tour around Windsor, including a view of the famous weekend home of Harry’s grandmother.

Barnardo’s Chief Executive Javed Khan said: “We’re delighted to see our ‘Prince Harry’ and ‘Meghan’ wearing wedding outfits from our Barnardo’s store. It shows the quality of the pre-loved clothes on offer at our shops and that you can find clothes suitable for special or even royal occasions.

“We hope everyone had great fun getting a ‘sneak peek’ at our lookalike newly-weds and wish the real Prince Harry and Meghan Markle every happiness on their wedding day and the years to come.”
