Gathimba Edwards Foundation’s Myles Edwards has had to cancel his plans to take part in Aberdeen’s longest running not-for-profit road race on 20 May after landing an invite to the wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle the day before.

The 29-year-old was excited about making his first appearance in the BHGE 10km until he received a letter from Lord Provost Barney Crockett inviting him to be among the 1,200 members of the public invited to the wedding in recognition of the contribution each has made to their communities.

Myles’ invitation allows his and a partner to access the grounds of Windsor Castle on the morning of the wedding to watch the arrival of the guests, listen to a live broadcast of the service and view the departure of the couple’s carriage procession.

Aberdeen based Myles founded the children’s charity with African runner Gideon Gathimba.
