Pupils also learned about marriage and acted out parts of Harry and Meghan’s ceremony; designed a wedding cake which they decorated with the help of school cook Mrs Purse; found out about the history of the royal family, and made Union Jack bunting.

The week culiminated in a picnic lunch for staff and children, who tucked in to a special dessert voted for by the school council and dubbed Meghan Markle marble cake.
