If anyone deserves to be given the royal treatment, it’s this sweet 12-year-old.
Amelia Thompson was one of the young spectators at the Ariana Grande concert bombing in Manchester, England last year. After the incident, she started raising money for bombing victims and sought healing through sessions with a therapy horse.
It’s for these reasons that her loving mother secretly nominated Amelia as a potential guest to the Royal Wedding between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at Windsor Castle.
But when she finally got an email saying that Amelia had been invited to the event, neither of them could believe their eyes.
“I started reading it and thought it was fake,” Amelia told CBC. “I was just saying to my mom, ‘“This isn’t real. This can’t be real.’”
Amelisa says that even though she would love to bring her mother as a plus one, she wants to bring Sharon Goodman – a woman who lost her 15-year-old granddaughter in the attack.
Overwhelmed by the exquisite honor, Amelia is now excitedly spending her days thinking about what to wear for the wedding – which is just another thing to help her heal from the past.
Not only that, but Amelia says that she has been especially inspired by Prince Harry’s noble example of coping with grief since he lost his mother, Princess Diana, in a car crash when he was young.
“He was open about his mum, which is why it kind of made me feel a bit more open about my feelings and how I might feel in life after the bombing.”
