A Peterborough Teen Is On The Royal Wedding Guest List!

New information regarding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding guest list has been announced, and one of the lucky invitees is a Canadian teen. Peterborough’s Faith Dickinson is one of seven “incredible young people” who have been invited to the grounds of Windsor Castle for Harry & Meghan’s nuptials on May 19th.

I have met Faith Dickinson, and she’s a pretty remarkable girl. Faith is just 15, and she’s the founder of ‘Cuddles for Cancer’, a non-profit organization that makes fleece blankets for cancer patients and soldiers living with PTSD. In just five years, Faith and her team of volunteers have sent 3,500 blankets around the world. She was 9 years old when she started making blankets.

Thanks to her work, Faith was one of 20 young people to receive a Diana Award (an honour created in the late Princess Diana’s name) for her “kindness, compassion and service.” Faith Dickinson received that award last year from Prince William & Prince Harry. Now she’ll have to find a fancy dress to wear to the wedding! Well deserved!
