This was quiet af­fair

Daily Star - - NEWS -

AR­RIV­ING at my sec­ond royal wed­ding of the year, I thought I knew what to ex­pect in terms of crowds, writes Tim Baker.

This time though I could drive in with no palaver of coaches, trains or boats to get to Wind­sor.

Just a short five-minute walk from the car park to the cas­tle. When Harry and Meghan tied the knot, there were snipers on ev­ery rooftop, snif­fer dogs and pla­toons of po­lice of­fi­cers.

Yes­ter­day, there was still se­cu­rity, but it was not over­bear­ing. A quick bag search and a me­tal de­tec­tor.

There wasn’t the fes­ti­val­like all-day drink­ing and hot dog munch­ing go­ing on and it was more the eyes of Wind­sor than the eyes of the world on pro­ceed­ings.

All present wished Eu­ge­nie and Jack the best for their mar­riage, the hum­drum of po­lice spend­ing for­got­ten in the joy of see­ing a young cou­ple start a new chap­ter in life.
