Scale of police security operation on royal wedding day revealed

The May 19 wedding is one of the largest public events policed by the force and in the run-up more police will be seen on patrol in the town, from armed officers to those with dogs and even mounted police on duty.

There was excitement last week when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sent out the invitations to their May wedding "made with American black and gold ink on English card", in a symbol of their transatlantic union.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Nicholl revealed some interesting details about Meghan's blossoming relationship with the Queen, especially now that she's about to be an official member of the royal family.

"A source said: "[Duchess Catherine] has also been advising Meghan about royal fashion, what protocol is expected and how she may have to adapt in the future. "The Military and these units, in particular, hold a great significance for Prince Harry and the couple are incredibly grateful for their support", the statement continued.

They're adding a special touch to their upcoming royal wedding! It is unclear if he will wear a uniform on his wedding day.

It's an opportunity to show, to adapt quickly to the team's play and to earn a call-up many more times". Morata has endured a goalscoring slump at Chelsea , scoring his first goal of 2018 on Sunday.


According to some estimates, the security operation for the royal wedding could amount to 30 million pounds. My guess is they will likely have a very personal invitation going out specifically for events before or after the formal ceremony. The other 1,440 people are from the Windsor Castle community, the Royal Households and Crown Estate, local charities and other organizations.

Palace aides have previously said that the prince and Ms Markle's wedding will "reflect their characters and personalities" and be a moment of "fun and joy".

About 200 guests have also been invited to an evening reception at Frogmore House, hosted by Prince Charles.

The couple will tie the knot at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, followed by a carriage procession through Windsor and a reception at St George's Hall.

British Transport Police will also be patrolling stations and carriages.
