Tight security for Harry and Meghan's wedding

But for the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011, Kate Middleton was referred to as "Miss Catherine Middleton".

As the world counts down to the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding, there's a lot to toast to-and many brands have been doing just that.

Security measures include an extensive network of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology and CCTV alongside hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) barriers to prevent the use of cars or vans in an attack.

"I am proud that members of the Armed Forces have been asked to take part in the ceremonial celebrations taking place on the royal couple's wedding day", Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach, Chief of the Defence Staff, said in a statement released by the United Kingdom government.

Meghan Markle's family will reportedly receive their very own family coat of arms ahead of her royal wedding to Prince Harry.

A tweet posted at a verified account of the Kensington Palace states that Harry and his bride-to-be are pleased that members of the Armed Forces will have such a special role in their wedding.

Mahmood said Pakistan has sought peaceful and good neighbourly relations with all countries in South Asia , including India. On the other hand, nobody is ready to listen to the narrative of Pakistan.

But even before Markle steps into St George's Chapel on May 19 the gilded invitations to the ceremony have already subtly hinted at her past marriage.

"Once you arrive in Windsor there will be a screening and search regime".

Assistant Chief Constable David Hardcastle, strategic commander for the wedding, said: 'We are proud to police the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. On the big day, visitors may be stopped and checked by police officers.

The force says the majority of those working on the operation will be from Thames Valley but other forces, such as British Transport Police, the Metropolitan Police and Surrey Police, will also be involved.

Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have links to the military.

The force assured residents that day-to-day policing and the response to incidents would not be affected by the Royal wedding.
