Royal Wedding Put On The North East Map By Patriotic Knitters

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle will be tying the knot at Windsor Castle in the next couple of days. A Royal Wedding always rallies the nation and none more so than these patriotic, North East knitters.

The Royal Wedding party has been knitted in FULL  and is on display at Nunthorpe Station. For those of you who don’t know, Nunthorpe is a pretty suburb of Middlesbrough close to the border of North Yorkshire. The railway station is on the Esk Valley Line so travellers to and from Whitby are getting this glorious view from their train windows.

Lots of locals and press have visited over the past week or so since the yarn bombers went live with their latest creation, even a tv crew from as far away as Canada we are reliably informed.

If you look closely you might spot  a corgi or two AND Elton John!

The team of 40 knitters have been working on the wedding since January and even if you aren’t into Royal Weddings you can’t help but be impressed by the care and dedication that has gone into creating this stunning Buckingham Palace balcony scene.

As Nunthorpe is close to where we live we went up there a day or so ago and took some photos to share ourselves. We think you’ll agree they are cuteness personified.

  • Wow they’ve done a great job! #PatrioticKnitters

    I’m not a royalist per say however, I will be “glued” to the TV on Saturday. I’m the same age as Diana would have been and my son is same age as Harry. Given the mother and son relationship I am blessed to have and knowing what Harry and Diana missed out on and in particular all that Harry has gone through since her death, I just want this lad to get his happy ever after.

    Before anyone yells “he has a privileged life” etc etc, so what? Regardless of wealth, post or position his hearts been broken for a long time and I just want to see it mended XX
