Evening News readers share their royal wedding plans

With the royal betrothal of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle fast approaching we (naively) thought we'd ask our readers what their plans were for the big day.

Millions are expected to tune in tomorrow for the royal wedding, including, we expect, a good number of people from Edinburgh.

Judging from our social media channels, however, it seems fair to suggest there will be some households out there who definitely won’t be wearing Harry and Meghan masks or hanging red, white and blue bunting.

We asked our readers (gulp) on Twitter and Facebook what their plans were for the royal wedding, here’s a snippet of some of the responses.
