John and Frances Canning, a couple from Prestwich, England, had an amazing surprise at their own wedding. The soon-to-be newly weds had booked Manchester Town Hall long before the wedding but just a few weeks before the actual ceremony they received a phone call from the staff.
Frances and John were informed that they would be sharing the venue with a VIP and, to their amazement, it turned out that it was the Queen herself. After finding out that Her Majesty was going to be at the same place on their special day, the Cannings wrote to the Buckingham Palace and invited Her Royal Highness to their event. The couple received a kind ‘thank you’ letter from the Palace but didn’t expect that the Queen would actually care to come and greet them by name. Both Frances and John were really grateful for Her Majesty’s efforts and shared that they were big fans of the Royal family and would remember the encounter for the rest of their lives.
