  15. Much Marcle renamed Meghan Marcle

    People are doing all sorts of clever things to celebrate the royal wedding tomorrow and in the Harry-fordshire village of Much Marcle, someone has got a bit creative with the sign.

    Janey Cotton said she had to use scissors to cut through the brambles and make her alterations, but that it was worth it because she's a big fan of the royal family, especially Prince Harry.

    However, she drew the line at driving all the way over to Little Marcle to put one up there too.
