Prince William and Harry’s former Filipino nanny, Araceli "Lillie" Piccio, has received an invitation to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29 (UK time), reports The Philippine Star.
Piccio and her plus one are invited to the much-awaited ceremony at the Westminster Abbey in the UK, according to The Philippine Star columnist Ricky Lo, who cited Piccio’s sister and Bacolod paper columnist Nimfa "Buddai" Piccio.
Piccio, called "Miss Lillie" by the late Lady Diana, served in the royal household for eight years until a few months after Lady Diana died in 1997, reports The Philippine Star. According to her sister, a 15-year-old Prince William told Piccio when she left, "When I get married, I will take you back."
A nurse from Bacolod, Piccio is now working for a different employer in London. According to The Philippine Star, she was the first Filipina employed by the royal family. She used to spend Mondays to Saturdays at the Royal Apartment in London.
