The security measures, likened to a "ring of steel" around Windsor Castle and the procession route for the wedding, will include heavy metal barriers to deter and prevent terrorist attacks by vehicle, and sweeps of cars.

As preparations for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding ramp up (we are less than two months away until their big day on May 19) it's time to start thinking about gifts.

Details of Thames Valley Police's operation to safeguard the newlyweds, their guests and spectators have been released, with airport-style security scanners and bag searches also planned in Windsor.

Police say they are trying to balance robust security measures with a desire to allow the thousands of onlookers to enjoy the atmosphere of the wedding.

Harry and his American actress fiancee are set to tie the knot at Windsor Castle, west of London, on May 19. All those arriving in the town will go through a "screening and search regime".

"On the day, visitors may be stopped and checked", it said, adding that police would also be patrolling stations and train carriages into Windsor.

It certainly is not the ideal start for the Finn, whose contract with the Silver Arrows runs out at the end of the 21-race season. McLaren's Fernando Alonso was a major casualty in Q2, finishing 11th fastest and missing out to Renault's Nico Hulkenberg.

The force also encouraged local businesses, communities and visitors to continue to be its "extra eyes and ears".

A spokesman from the force said: "Our officers and staff are proud to be involved in policing this national celebration, and the majority of those working on this operation will be from the Thames Valley".

The title has never been used before in an invitation to a royal wedding and is in stark contrast to, for instance, the 2011 wedding invitations for Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding, when she was referred to as "Miss Catherine Middleton".

"I am particularly pleased to hear that members of the Armed Forces who have a close relationship with Prince Harry will be taking part".

Some estimates suggest security for the wedding will cost £30 million and police forces are talking to the Home Office over who foots the final bill.
