Public urged to wear 'sensible clothes' for royal wedding

Friday, May 11, 2018

Revellers heading to Windsor to enjoy the royal wedding have been urged to wear "sensible clothes".

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead reminded members of the public via Twitter to dress for "a long day spent outside".

It said: "Make sure you wear sensible clothes if you're travelling to watch the #royalwedding it will be a long day spent outside."

One Twitter user questioned whether the official account was actually a parody.

The council has advised spectators hoping to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19 to plan ahead.

Visitors will be able to watch the newlyweds' carriage procession from Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road or the Long Walk, it said.

Road closures along the procession route through the town centre will begin at 10pm on Friday May 18, with additional closures from 6am on the day of the wedding.

As preparations in the town gather pace, there will also be closures along the carriage route on Thursday May 17 from 9am until around 2pm.
