The Mayor of the Bulgarian village of Zabardo, in the Rhodope Mountains, Veselin Cherpokov, has sent an official invitation to British Prince William and his bride, Kate Middleton, to pay a visit to the village.

Zabardo is known for its folklore, traditions and the Zabardo Wheel, a carousel that became the symbol of a couple's never-ending love and devotion.

In a congratulations address to the British Embassy in Sofia, the Mayor is inviting the royal newly-weds to take a spin on the Wheel.

In addition, the famous Zabardo grandmothers' folk group has modified a popular Rhodope folk song with new arrangement and text, dedicated to William and Kate.
