Homeless pets pipe up for Royal Wedding

A choir of homeless pets at Blue Cross have recorded the world's first all-animal rendition of Here Comes the Bride to celebrate Prince Harry's upcoming nuptials to Meghan Markle.

Dozens of dogs, cats and horses from rehoming centres across the country feature on the unique track made as a special gift for the royal couple ahead of their wedding on 19 May at St George's Chapel in Windsor.

The track and accompanying heart-warming music video stars a whole troupe of Blue Cross pets who are seeking homes, including a beagle pup named Marley, Squirrel the enthusiastic Jack Russell Terrier, a Shetland pony named Tristan and four adorable domestic short-haired kittens Julian, Jill, Janet and Joyce alongside their mum, Jessica.

The future Duchess is known to be a big animal lover and her adopted beagle Guy made the move to the UK when the royal pair decided to tie-the-knot last year while Bogart, a Labrador-Shepherd mix, remained behind in Canada due to his age.  

Mandy Jones, Director of Rehoming, said: “We know that Meghan Markle is a huge fan of rescue pets and the fantastic support she provides for animals is something we want to celebrate.

"To say congratulations to the royal couple on their wedding day, our homeless pets have given something special, they’ve given a gift of song with this rendition of Here Comes The Bride.

“Each pet seen and heard is desperately looking for its new family and we hope this loving wedding season will help them sing their way into loving new homes.”

Blue Cross also knows just how much the general public value their pets on their wedding day, with as many as one in 10 Brits (according to a recent OnePoll survey) having given pets a central role in their own wedding ceremony and 56 per cent wanting their pets to have a starring role in their wedding photos and video.
