The Ceremony will be an event of national importance and has been creating headlines in all the papers for weeks now. Hundreds of organisers of street parties have applied to local government for road closures, pub opening-hour extensions and public viewings.
As many as 100,000 people are expected to descend on Windsor for the big day, viewing areas are created along the procession route and there will be live entertainment in the town centre. After their nuptials, the couple will take a 25 minute procession through the town.
