"The policing operation will be amongst the largest in Thames Valley Police's history", the force said in a statement. Approximate driving distance between London and Windsor Castle is 37 kilometers. British Transport Police will also be patrolling train stations and train carriages.
More security will be in place once people arrive in Windsor, including a screening and search regime, and any items that may pose a risk to the public will be removed.
Search dogs, the mounted section, the roads policing unit and the National Police Air Service will also join forces with local police to increase security.
These are put in place to prevent the use of vehicles in the instance of an attack.
According to The Daily Mail "Josh is a big star in the U.S., an actor and comedian, he also beat boxes on "The Late Late Show" with James Corden". All leave has been cancelled for the force's 4,200 officers.
Police and security chiefs have been studying lessons learned from the five terror attacks in London and Manchester previous year, in particular the atrocities on London and Westminster bridges where vehicles mowed down crowds.
Specialist units, such as firearms officers, are to be brought in as re-inforcements from neighboring forces. "We all got up and did a solo, then had one big dance number".
"We are proud to police the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead", Thames Valley Police Assistant Chief Constable David Hardcastle, strategic commander for the wedding, says.
