Resident Margaret Hunt, said: “We were clapping when Meghan came onto the TV and we had food, chatted and sang all the old songs - ‘We’ll Meet Again’ and Tom Jones’s ‘Delilah’. We couldn’t wait to see the dress and we thought it was lovely.

“We had food from Sainsbury’s, a meat and salad platter, small pasties, and a cake from the Cake Box in the Arndale Centre [Mall] with ‘Harry and Meghan congratulations’ written on it. We all had a toast when they got married!

“There’s 31 flats in the court - we’re all elderly - and the party got everyone out for a little while into the communal room, to come down together and have a laugh.”
