Royal super fans camped outside Windsor Castle for another night, as the massive security operation stepped up days before the royal wedding between Prince Harry and his American actress fiancee Meghan Markle.
“We’ve all been waiting for Harry. If his mom was alive now Diana, she really would be proud of the pair. For me, Harry is different. He is more upfront. He does what he wants. Even the duke, you know, can’t call the card on him. He actually does what he does,” said Terry Hutt, a royal fan from Western-super-Mare.
Also making sure they will have a good view of the couple, television crews from all over the world were seen early morning setting up positions.
On Windsor’s streets, decorated with swathes of red, white and blue “union jack” flags, hundreds of tourists and journalists mingled with dedicated royal fans – some draped with UK flags and holding photographs of Harry and Markle – while armed police patrolled.
“It’s colorful, seeing so many people come together from all walks of life, different countries even people who live locally that don’t come here that often. Even they’re coming here more and more every day. It’s quite nice to have everyone come together,” said Amaad Akbal, a local resident.
More than 100,000 people are expected to descend on the town on Saturday.
Local police said royal fans coming to Windsor to witness the wedding will experience tight security, even though there is no known threat to the event. — Giselle Bonifacio | UNTV News & Rescue
