The couple said they were “incredibly grateful” for the goodwill that has been shown to them since they announced their engagement back in November.

The couple have asked guests to donate money to CHIVA (Children’s HIV Association); Crisis, the national charity for homeless people; the Myna Mahila Foundation, which aims to empower women in Mumbai’s urban slums, Scotty’s Little Soldiers, which helps bereaved Armed Forces children; StreetGames, which uses sport to change lives across the U.K.; the conservation charity Surfers against Sewage, and The Wilderness Foundation U.K.
