Her poem was accepted by the publishers who have just released the book.

Enid, 82, of Londonthorpe, said: “I don’t know if it has already been given to the Prince and the Princess or if they are sending it out now but hopefully they will like what I have written.

“The publishers of the book have published some of my poems in the past so they got in touch asking if I would like to send a poem on the Royal Wedding. I did and they accepted it,”

There are more than 200 poems in the book which is expected to be available in all good book shops, priced £19.99.

Enid has regularly written poetry for many years. She often publishes poetry booklets of her work, with some of the money raised going towards St John the Baptist Church in Londonthorpe, where she is a church warden.

Enid said: “There are over 200 poems in the book and they are all different styles.

“Hopefully they will send a special one to the Prince with a hardback cover.”
