Thousands gather for royal wedding

Social Share

There is a bustling trade along High Street early this morning as vendors capitalise on the heavy crush of royal wedding watchers making their way into Windsor for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle.

The couple will be wed at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle at midday today.

Thousands have been streaming into Windsor by the trainloads to be part of the grand occasion.

There is also as a heavy police presence in the area keeping watch.

Vendors are out in their numbers selling flags, tee shirts, bags and scarves with pictures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Pretty flowers also adorn every street corner.

There is even the English delicacy of strawberries and clotted cream being offered to those making their way into the busy Windsor area.

Big screens have also been set up closeby for royal watchers to follow the ceremony.

In the distance, the ringing of bells pierce the atmosphere at Windsor alerting of the royal event set to start in a couple hours.

Thousands camped outside the castle overnight.  Some were in position for as long as four to five days hoping to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds after the ceremony when they take a tour around Windsor in their carriage.

Currently, thousands are making their way to find a vantage point from which they can witness the ceremony. (CM)
