She may have already had a brush with royalty, but that didn't mean 15-year-old Peterborough girl Faith Dickinson expected an invite to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

"I dropped to the floor and I was shaking after and I definitely couldn't sleep that night from excitement," she tells our Lainey of getting the call that she was invited to the royal affair. 

Still, she kept a healthy bit of skepticism.

"I was like, we need the confirmation email before we can get excited. And I told my parents and they were like, no, that's not real."

But real it is. She was invited for her work with Cuddles for Cancer, an initiative she started when she was just nine. Dickinson makes blankets for cancer patients, as well as soldiers and veterans who return home injured or su ffering from PTSD. She met Harry, as well as Prince William, last year when she was awarded the Diana Award -- a legacy award named after Princess Diana, bestowed on young people changing the world.

At the award ceremony she had a particularly memorable exchange with Harry.

"When I went up to shake his hand and he gave me my award, he said that I was the most impressive red head in the room," she recalls.

Faith was still awaiting more details of what her day will hold when Lainey spoke to her about the wedding, but said she and other past Diana Award recipients will watch the wedding from the Windsor Castle grounds, and will have a chance to go into the chapel after the reception.

She was also still in the process of finalizing her custom dress.

"I'm actually working with a designer and I'm very excited," she said. "It's definitely going to be baby blue... I think it will be lace at the top and then flow down."

While she didn't get a plus one for the event, her mom, dad and grandma are also making the trip over to England with her.

"I think they might actually go to a pub and have some fish and chips and watch it," she says.

And, like most teenagers, she'll be sure to document her experience firsthand.

"Yes for sure, all over social media."
