Harry and Meghan wanted ordinary members of the public to take part in their day, so they asked Lord Lieutenants to invite individuals to join the celebrations, including young people who have shown strong leadership, and those who have served their communities.
Alex said: “We were based just outside the west entrance of the chapel and saw a number of the celebrity guests walk right past us – the cast of Suits, George Clooney, Elton John – no one really stood out but turned into a who’s who game trying to spot who came in!
“Then when we saw Prince William and Harry walking in, that’s really when the anticipation of the crowd really started to grow.
“We heard the service though the broadcasters and after the wedding had finished we were able to go into the chapel.
“When I got a notification through on my phone Harry and Meghan would be Duke and Duchess of Sussex, that added to the occasion as it is first time in 140 or so years that we have had that title used.”
As well as enjoying the occasion with his wife, Alex was a man in demand, carrying out interviews with journalists from Reuters, BBC Sussex, More Radio and Heart throughout the day.
Even though he celebrated the occasion away from the town, he said he was delighted with the way people locally marked the wedding.
Alex said: “From what we saw in Worthing, residents across the area were excited and really tuned into it. The way that people bought into the royal wedding, whether it was through events like the Broadwater Picnic or travelling up and camping in Windsor, was fantastic.
“It shows what impact having such a dynamic young couple who are modernising the royalty and bringing it into the modern age can have on people. Harry and Meghan are really personal and, because of that, people relate to them.
“This royal wedding was completely different to anything else, even with the fact they invited members of the public like us along, and that came across on the day.
“They are fantastic ambassadors for the county and I hope to see them in Worthing some time soon!”
