Prince Harry and fianc é e Megan, who married in May, are preparing to invite about 2640 members of the public to attend their wedding, but sources say Windsor Street Rangers may be evicted during the wedding, sparking controversy. The royal family has unveiled the sale of a collection of Prince Harry wedding souvenirs, which will be used to help homeless people in Windsor City.
A new range of royal wedding memorabilia has gone on sale to raise money for the homeless in Windsor.
Non-profit brand For Richer, For Poorer has launched the collection – which includes a tea towel, T-shirt and commemorative plate – ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan’s big day in May.
Each product features a crest that depicts issues faced by rough sleepers, along with a message explaining that the item helps homeless people in Windsor.
It comes after a row sparked by the suggestion that rough sleepers should be removed from the streets of Windsor by police ahead of the royal wedding.
The range of souvenirs by For Richer, For Poorer – priced between £10 and £40 – includes postcards, fridge magnets, a ceramic mug and bunting.
On their website, the non-profit explains what buying each item will provide for a homeless person – from a toiletry kit to hot meals.
There is also a ‘hero item’: a £5,000 commemorative plate that will cover all costs involved with re-homing someone for an entire year.
For Richer, For Poorer are working with charity Windsor Homeless Project to help rough sleepers in the town.
It comes after the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead was forced to drop plans to fine rough sleepers £100 if they refused to engage with services.
Council leader Simon Dudley came under fire for demanding police remove homeless people from the streets ahead of the royal wedding.
Prime Minister Theresa May – whose constituency is Maidenhead – spoke out against his comments earlier this year, saying she ‘did not agree’ with the proposal.
Murphy James, from Windsor Homeless Project, said: ‘Prince Harry and Meghan are both passionately committed to supporting those in need, including the UK’s homeless.
‘By celebrating their special day with a hard-hitting message, For Richer, For Poorer really highlights the challenges our homeless communities face on a daily basis. Together we can make a difference to their lives.
