No Threat, but UK Royal Wedding Fans in Windsor Face Tight Security

All royal fans coming to Windsor to watch the wedding of Britain's Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle will have to pass through tight security but there is no known threat to the event, a police commander told Reuters on Wednesday.

More than 100,000 people are expected to flock to the genteel town dominated by Windsor Castle where the couple will marry on Saturday in a glittering ceremony mixing traditional royal pomp with a flavour of Hollywood glamour.

Britain is on its second-highest threat level of severe, meaning an attack by militants is considered highly likely. Last year there were four deadly attacks blamed on terrorists which claimed 36 lives.

There is no particular threat for this event. There’s no intelligence to support that this event is going to be particularly targeted.
Jim Weems, tactical commander in chief for the wedding to Reuters

Some 5,000 officers were on duty in London when Prince William married Kate Middleton in a huge display of British pageantry in 2011 but Weems declined to say how many would be patrolling in Windsor on Saturday.
