Merthyr printers' royal order


A company from Merthyr Tydfil, which won the contract to print the official programmes for the Royal Wedding, had to keep their prestigious job secret for weeks.

Staff at Stephens and George produced 150,000 of the glossy booklets which were sold to the crowds who gathered to watch the wedding procession through London.

Managing Director Andrew Jones, speaking before the wedding, says the programmes printed in their Dowlais site were to be used in the Abbey and also sold on the street.

Any money raised will go to one of Prince Harry's charities.

He said he had to sign very strict confidentiality agreements and ask the 210 workers not to spill the beans.
