Buckle up team, the royal wedding is five – we repeat five – days away! We suggest you prepare your royal watching party for the May 19 nuptials. We’re so exited for Saturday, but we secretly don’t want the anticipation to end either! We’re really enjoying being the unofficial royal correspondents of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s big day.
Speaking of all things royal, the famous family also have a lot of restrictions in motion for the wedding. While Queen Elizabeth II recently signed the Instrument of Consent, the hand-written document which records her consent on the marriage of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle, there is one thing she has banned – drones.
The Queen has placed an official ban on drones flying over her Windsor home during the wedding for privacy and security reasons. The ban has even been granted by the Civil Aviation Authority and will be monitored and enforced on the day. Offenders will apparently be prosecuted!
It has been reported that Supt Jim Weems, Tactical Commander for the policing operation said, “This Restriction of Flying Regulation is a routine measure for a large scale event such as this and is part of the broad range of security measures that are in place to deliver a safe and secure day for everyone.”
With hundreds of thousands of people expected to gather in Windsor for the big day (some are already camped along the Long Walk!), Thames Valley Police have urged public bystanders to be ‘drone rangers’.
We’d happily be ‘drone rangers’ if it meant getting a snoop of the royal wedding.
