Royal wedding: Harry and Meghan well-wishers to be screened by body scanners

Cadet Colour Sergeant Kyle Laird meets Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they visited Edinburgh Garrison HQ

From serving elderflower cake instead of fruit cake to giving a speech at her own reception, there are a lot of royal traditions that Meghan Markle is planning on breaking at her wedding to Prince Harry in May.

All leaves for Thames Valley Polices 4,200-strong force has been cancelled, though police are refusing to say exactly how many officers will be deployed in the security operation.

But there's one super-strict royal rule involving Markle's future grandma-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II, that the duchess-to-be won't be able to skirt.

With the United States actress a big draw both to British and American fans, huge crowds are expected, with the processional route of the carriage ride estimated to hold around 100,000 spectators. Thames Valley is in talks with the Home Office as to how the cost will be shared.

The tight security for the forthcoming royal wedding has been revealed.

The force is aware of the homeless campaign #RoyalSleepOver with hundreds pledging on Facebook to spend the night in Windsor on the eve of the wedding.


A broad range of visible security measures are in place, such as number plate recognition technology, CCTV, and anti-terror vehicle barriers.

Nearly every Thames Valley Police officer will be on duty that day but that includes police working right across the force's area.

The wedding day will feature regiments and units that have a special relationship with Prince Harry, who served in the military for a decade and was deployed on frontline duties twice in Afghanistan.

Thames Valley Police Assistant Chief Constable, David Hardcastle, who is the strategic commander for the wedding, said: "We are proud to police the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead".

On May 19, visitors to Windsor might be stopped and checked by roads policing officers.

Prince Harry and Ms Markle will marry at St George's Chapel, with 600 guests invited to watch the ceremony and a further 2,640 members of the public allowed to stand inside the castle walls to watch their arrival and departure. "We are working with our partners, local businesses and the community to deliver a safe, secure and happy event for everyone".
