Throston Primary School even spelled out the initials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as part of its celebrations.

"We used the children to mark out a large H and M, intersected by a heart, using over 450 children and staff," said head teacher Marl Atkinson.

And Kiddikins Nursery, based in the Hindpool Children's Centre, staged its own wedding and street party for its leavers.

"The day went really well and all the small details were perfect for tomorrow's big day," said spokeswoman Tracy Smith.

"However, the children were not happy with singing the British Anthem - they preferred The Animal Boogie, which they sang really well."
