Meghan Markle’s former high school had a royal affair of their own on the day of her wedding.
To celebrate Prince Harry and Markle’s big day, students, their families, and teachers at Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles, Calif., had an early morning viewing party.
Attendees gathered in their pajamas and fascinators at 3 a.m. to watch the highly anticipated event.
“I think it’s so cool that she was in my shoes and now she is marrying the prince of England,” Justine Katz, a student, told CBS News.
Many students said it was nice to see the diversity at the wedding.
“You can already see the impact that she’s making with the all black choir, the black lead cellist,” Megan Speier, a senior at the school, said. “I think that she is bringing in amazing sense of diversity to what is otherwise known as a pretty traditional and cut-an-dry event.”
Last week the school celebrated the wedding with a flash mob in which everyone wore a fascinator. The students also held a tea party to celebrate the occasion.
Markle graduated from Immaculate Heart in 1999. Nearly two decades later, she is still remembered fondly by her former teachers.
"I’m really proud of the strong-willed woman she has become," theology teacher Christine Knudsen told InsideEdition.com. "This girl isn't just beautiful and smart — she's also got a lot of depth to her."
