Atmosphere builds for Windsor party
STROLLING down the Long Walk as the sun beams down on Windsor Castle, wedding fever has the town firmly in its grip.
The narrow cobbled streets of this 11th century town are full of colour, mounted processions, Union flags and hundreds of royal fans camped out on the pavement.

tomorrow. And there’s plenty to put serious royal fans in the party mood.
Gift shop Windsor Wine and Gifts, which looks out on to the castle, has had to order in hundreds more of their £9.99 replica Meghan wedding rings because so many people have wanted one of their own.
Shop assistant Evie Stevens says: “A man proposed to his girlfriend with one in the castle the other day. She said ‘yes’.”
And in coffee shop Heidi, the custom-made “Megharryccino” is a big hit. Barista Loic Marion, 18, says they ordered in a special machine to make the coffees, with Harry and Meghan faces printed in the foam.
