Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be surrounded by the noise of cheering crowds on their wedding day – but the skies above them will be completely silent.
As their royal wedding date approaches, it’s been revealed that planes have been banned from flying over Windsor Castle on the day of their wedding.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) have confirmed that the airspace above St George’s Chapel, which is located in the Castle’s grounds, will be restricted on Saturday, May 19.
According to the CAA, the flight ban was requested for “safety and security” reasons.
However, sources have told The Sun on Sunday that the ban was requested due to the fact that the venue lies directly in the Heathrow flight path.
A source said, “There are constantly planes flying over Windsor, and the last thing anyone wants is for Meghan and Harry’s vows to be lost in the noise of a jet.”
“The ban on planes flying overhead will make sure that guests will be able to hear a pin drop in the Chapel as the couple are declared husband and wife.”
Meanwhile, a police spokesman said, “An appropriate policing plan is in place.”
