Whether you’ll be taking part in a street party or hosting your own, watching it on TV or streaming it live on the internet, attending or trying your best to avoid it – no one will have failed to notice the massive hype leading up to the Royal Wedding. Who will be designing the dress? Will the bride travel by horse and carriage? Who’s invited? Who isn’t? Who will be making the wedding cake? What confetti will be thrown? What souvenir to buy? The extensive, and somewhat tedious, list goes on…

To mark the special occasion, AnOther has chosen to focus on the sartorial hair choices of the wedding attendees, with a set of specially commissioned illustrations by renowned illustrator Christina Christoforou of the cult book Whose Hair?. On Friday 29 April at approximately 11am BST in Westminster Abbey the barnets of these seven people will be somewhere in Westminster Abbey. But whose hair are they?
