And they're queuing already! Royal wedding spectators camp out in Windsor

And they're queuing already! Royal wedding spectators camp out in Windsor

Viewing areas will be along the whole procession route of Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road and the Long Walk. They've been replaced by clear plastic bags so police can immediately see if there are any bombs inside.

Police Superintendent Jim Weems, who is leading the police presence at the wedding, told the BBC on Tuesday that homeless people will not be removed and that the local police "takes a very compassionate approach to homelessness".

Local council leader Simon Dudley sparked outrage past year when he called for homeless and beggars to be cleared out of Windsor in time for the ceremony - which takes place on Saturday afternoon - in case they painted the town in a "sadly unfavourable light".

The leader of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead provoked an outcry in January when he tweeted about "an epidemic of rough sleeping and vagrancy in Windsor".

Officers are also working with a homeless project in Sussex to offer further support'. Dudley's comments earned him widespread criticism from the public and politicians, including British Prime Minister Theresa May.

"A scheme has been set up for those who choose, to store their belongings at the Windsor Homeless Project during the Royal Wedding, and our officers have been assisting with transport of belongings, however this is entirely voluntary to ensure the safety of the homeless community".

A bus converted into a homeless shelter will be driving from Brighton to Windsor this weekend to help rough sleepers wanting to avoid the royal wedding. Anyone with large items that are deemed to be a security risk are likely to have those items removed'.

Pubs across the country will be open from 7am on Saturday May 19 to celebrate the Royal Wedding which, coincidentally, falls on the same day as the FA Cup Final.

They are hoping to benefit from festivities by selling a range of products, including a £10 pack of postcards, a £20 mug and a £5,000 plate.

The Windsor homeless population controversy comes amid a rapid rise in homelessness in the U.K. The number of people living on the streets has increased by 134% since the Conservative Party came to power in 2010, according to the National Audit Office. All profits will go towards supporting homeless people in the royal borough.

Murphy James, a spokesman for the charity, said: "Prince Harry and Meghan are both passionately committed to supporting those in need, including the UK's homeless. Together we can make a difference to their lives".
