Walthamstow college students met Prince Harry as they prepare to help out at a sporting event for wounded and sick servicemen and women.

Pupils from Sir George Monoux College in Chingford Road, Walthamstow, have been selected to be ‘social media champions’ at the event, organised by Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The pupils received training from experts from companies such as Facebook at the Bethnal Green Academy yesterday.

The Invictus Games take place in September.
