Royal Wedding Celebration 
Tea at Crowell Library

 Anglophiles far and 
wide are swooning in 
anticipation for May 19th, 
when His Royal Highness 
Prince Henry (“Harry”) of 
Wales will marry Southern 
California native Meghan 
Markle at Windsor Castle 
in the United Kingdom. 
But one does not have to 
fly to England to properly 
celebrate the royal wedding. 
Crowell Public Library will 
honor the royal couple in 
style with a Royal Wedding 
Celebration Tea on Saturday 
May 12th 2018, at 3:30 pm. 
The menu includes tea 
served in delicate china 
cups, finger sandwiches, 
and scones. Participants can 
poise their pinkies just as 
they would at Claridge’s: all 
fancy attire and accessories 
such as hats, jewelry, gloves, 
and scarves are encouraged. 
And those who wear a fancy 
hat fit for the queen are 
welcome to enter the Fancy 
Hat Contest. After this fine 
British tradition of afternoon 
tea, attendees will have the 
opportunity to make their 
own fascinator and impress 
friends with their noble 
knowledge during the Royal 
Family Trivia Game. 

 Fifth in line to the throne, 
Prince Harry and Ms. 
Markle’s marriage will be 
the first one of its kind. The 
venue will change from the 
popular Westminster Abbey 
to St. George’s Chapel at 
Windsor Castle, where they 
will nosh on lemon and 
elderflower cake instead of 
British fruit cake, and it is 
rumored Meghan’s bridal 
party will be slightly larger 
than Kate Middleton’s 
for her wedding in 2011. 
Individuals from all around 
the world look forward to 
celebrating the love, history, 
and tradition along with 
Harry and Meghan and their 
loved ones this May. 

 Registration for this Royal 
Wedding Celebration Tea is 
required as space is limited 
and will fill up quickly. Please 
note that this program is 
intended for adults only. 
Come to Crowell Library 
on Saturday May 12 to 
commemorate this historic 
occasion and have a spot of
