The Day Before They Said I Do

The Day Before They Said I Do

The day before Harry’s and Meghan’s wedding, Windsor was festooned with Union flags and bunting, and the streets near the castle heaved with television crews, souvenir sellers, tourists and police.

It was people-watching heaven, but the numbers were daunting: our town of just 30,000 souls was about to welcome 100,000 ‘wedding guests’ in a single day.

In the end, even the most cynical would have been enthralled by the theatre of the event. Everything came together on the day: the weather was perfect, the crowds radiated goodwill, and Windsor had never looked so good.
