Extreme security plans for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding revealed

With eight weeks to go until the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Thames Valley Police revealed on Thursday that it expects more than 100,000 people to visit Windsor for the event.

Other security measures include an extensive network of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology and CCTV alongside hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) barriers to prevent the use of cars or vans in an attack. If traveling by train, British Transport Police will also be patrolling stations and carriages.

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

The "ring of steel", which costs about 42.18 million USA dollars, will be erected to deter terrorist vehicle attacks, said Thames Valley Police, responsible for policing the event, adding that the operation is likely to be the biggest in its history as they gradually build up the security in the city over the next seven weeks.

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.

"This will be a national celebration and it's likely to attract thousands of people from around the world and we will have many officers on staff who are working hard now with partners to make sure that this is a safe, secure and happy event for everyone who attends".

According to The Daily Mail "Josh is a big star in the USA, an actor and comedian, he also beat boxes on "The Late Late Show" with James Corden".

All leave for the 4,200-strong police force has been cancelled as they work with Scotland Yard, which will provide security for the royals inside the castle.

The tight security measures in place for the upcoming royal wedding have been revealed.

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