More than 100000 people expected to flock to Windsor for Royal Wedding

Counter-terror measures will be enforced including barriers to stop vehicle attacks will be erected and a network of automatic number plate recognition that can check for vehicles registered on criminal databases.

Once visitors arrive in Windsor there will be a screening and search regime.

If too many people descend on Windsor, the town will be put on virtual lock-down, with trains no longer stopping to drop passengers off at its stations and people turned away from crowded processional routes.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's post-wedding carriage ride route may be closed to latecomers if the 100,000 revellers expected become a safety issue.

The security operation, likely to be the largest in the history of Thames Valley police, has been estimated as costing up to £30 million.

Prince Harry, who served two tours of Afghanistan during his time in the Army, has continued to support the troops through his charity work and his Invictus Games event, a Paralympic-style sporting competition for injured military personnel.

With the U.S. 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.

On the big day, anyone wishing to see the royal procession take place through Windsor will be subject to searches by the police.

Assistant Chief Constable David Hardcastle, strategic commander for the wedding, said: 'We are proud to police the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

While the TVP are no newcomers to policing royal events, the scale of the event means they will be supported by the Metropolitan Police and British Transport Police, as well as other forces from outside the Thames Valley.

And while details of Markle's coat of arms have yet to be unveiled, it is expected that it will include at least a bit of symbolism to represent Meghan's American heritage.

Kensington Palace confirmed last week that guests had been invited to a service at St. George's Chapel on May 19 followed by a lunchtime reception at St. George's Hall, hosted by Queen Elizabeth II.
