13-YEAR-OLD GIRL WITH DREAMS OF BECOMING AN ACTRESS GETS A SURPRISE INVITE TO THE ROYAL WEDDING
Ever since the announcement of the engagement between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the internet has taken a new toll in celebrating this couple. The wedding which is slated to hold on the 19th of May 2018 has left a lot of dignitaries wondering if they would be invited to The Royal Wedding especially when former President Barack Obama, former First Lady Michelle Obama and British Prime Minister Theresa May are not getting the honour of an invite to the royal wedding.
So it came as a surprise for Leonora Ncomanzi who was left speechless when she was told, she would be attending the wedding in St George’s Chapel, at Windsor Castle.
Leonora who has big dreams of becoming an actress is a student of Nottingham Academy, first met Meghan Markle in December 2017 after she visited her school.
“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.” Says Ncomanzi
Lenora is also part of the Nature group run by the Full Effect Programme which is supported by The Royals. She has always been a friend of the couple. In October 2017, she joined Prince Harry on his trip to Chicago to attend President Barrack Obama’s Inaugural Foundation Summit.
Her father like every excited parent describes this event as her highest achievement so far and says he is proud of her.
“I’m very proud of my daughter. This is her highest ever achievement. She is desperate to be an actress and so she was so thrilled to meet Meghan. But we’ve had to keep our lips sealed on the details as it is so highly classified.”
