The Royal Wedding is just few days away! While some us plan what we would wear sitting on our couch at home, guess who has already scooped an invite and has even picked out her dress? Leonora Ncomanzi, a 13-year-old school girl who met Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during an official visit to the Nottingham Academy in December 2017 has been invited to one of the UK’s most anticipated ceremonies.
Prior to the school visit, Leonora had already met Prince Harry a number of times before but it was her first time meeting Meghan and they reportedly bonded. Leonara and the soon-to-be Princess have the same love interest and nope it’s not Prince Harry. Leonara has aspirations of becoming an actress and who better than a former Hollywood starlet to give her advice.
Leonora Ncomanzi, is a member of an organisation dubbed Full Effect, which is supported by the Royal Foundation. Through their mentorship and training programs, Full Effects helps deter young people from becoming involved in youth violence and crime.
Speaking on her surprise invite, Leonora disclosed:
”When I found out that I was invited to the wedding, I was speechless. I am so excited. ‘When my mum was told I was invited she screamed for five minutes. ‘Meghan is such an inspiration to me – the first time I met her I asked her if she had any advice for me as I want to be an actress like her.”
”She said I should always be prepared to face rejection but to keep following my dreams. I can’t wait to see what she is wearing on the day. I have already bought my dress too.”
