Leading pet charity Blue Cross has released the world's first all-animal version of Here Comes The Bride featuring dozens of homeless dogs, cats and horses as a special wedding gift for royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Released at the height of royal wedding mania, the Blue Cross Pet Choir has banded together to celebrate not only Meghan's affection for her own rescue pets, but her love for all animals and the support she's given pet charities. Her adopted beagle Guy made the move to the UK when the royal pair decided to tie-the-knot last year. Bogart, a labrador-shepherd mix, sadly had to remain behind in Canada due to his age.
The menagerie of sounds were recorded by homeless Blue Cross pets at their rehoming centres across the country, and then remixed into the familiar wedding march song. The 'pawsome' wedding gift is not only a celebration of pets, but a means of highlighting the need for proper care and attention to give them a happy and healthy life.
The track and accompanying heart-warming music video stars a whole troupe of Blue Cross pets who are seeking homes. Mandy Jones, director of rehoming, said, “We know that Meghan Markle is a huge fan of rescue pets and the fantastic support she provides for animals is something we want to celebrate. To say congratulations to the royal couple on their wedding day, our homeless pets have given something special, they've given a gift of song with this rendition of Here Comes The Bride.
“Each pet seen and heard is desperately looking for a new family and we hope this will help them sing their way into caring new homes.”
