Windsor prepares for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal

Preparations have begun in earnest for the second Royal event of the summer as former army captain Prince Harry prepares to tie the knot with American actress Meghan Markle.

Royal excitement hit fever pitch in April with the announcement of the Kate Middleton's third child - His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge - born on the 23rd at St Mary's Hospital, in London.

And anticipation is expected to ramp up again as Harry and Ms Markle's May 19 at Windsor Castle draws near - with family, friends, dignitaries and a host of celebrities expected to be in attendance. 

Heartwarming pictures show residents in the historical market town of Windsor getting into the full spirit of the event with pubs decorating their windows with royal memorabilia, bunting and Union Jacks adorning the walls.
