William and Kate get poem present
One of the wedding presents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been given is a copy of a poem about their wedding, written by a 13 year old girl.
Marie-Ann Harvey won a competition run by Milton Keynes Council to celebrate William and Kate's wedding. The royal couple have been sent a copy that's been printed on parchment made by a company in Newport Pagnell. They also made the parchement for one of the official wedding documents, which the Queen signed to signify her consent to the marriage.
The competition judges, which included Milton Keynes poet Mark Niel and Milton Keynes Mayor, Cllr Debbie Brock, liked the way the author linked Kate's wedding with her own future marriage.
The sweetest memory of the princess bride
by Marie-Ann Harvey, aged 13
A tiny hand reaches out
Reaching for the TV
A princess in a sparkling dress
Is smiling back at me
Her skin is soft and glowing
Her eyes glint with delight
She's been waiting her entire life
For this one perfect night
The Queen is smiling lovingly
A tear trickles from her eye
Prince William and his beauty
Complete their bonding tie
So many years later
When the bride in the mirror is me
One sweet memory is shining
Of the princess that was she
As I'm walking down the aisle
And I'm in my OWN white dress
I know the everlasting happiness
Of the prince and his princess
