A brewery in Windsor, the British town where Prince Harry will marry American Meghan Markle in May, believes it has concocted its own flawless pairing with a "royal beer" celebrating the occasion.

On the big day, anyone wishing to see the royal procession take place through Windsor will be subject to searches by the police. Now, it seems a pub a stone's throw from St. George's Chapel in Windsor is following suit-with a commemorative royal wedding gin!

More than 100,000 people from across the world are expected to travel to Windsor to watch Harry and Meghan tie the knot. "We had a brain-storming session and also asked friends and family for ideas and eventually came up with Gin&er gin".

Prince Harry will salute his former comrades in the Armed Forces by having them play a "special role" in his upcoming wedding to Meghan Markle.

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.

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.

All leaves for Thames Valley Polices 4,200-strong force has been cancelled, though police are refusing to say exactly how many officers will be deployed in the security operation.

"We are working with our partners, local businesses and the community to deliver a safe, secure and happy event for everyone".

Well-wishers who want to line the streets of the procession are being warned to expect a "screening and searching" regime, including the inspection of any sleeping bags that could hide suspicious materials.

Even before the wedding, residents and visitors will see an increased police presence from police officers - both armed and unarmed - and search dogs, the mounted section, the roads policing unit and the National Police Air Service.
