Havant Borough Council is keen to offer free advice to residents wanting to do so, and ensure they are aware of the things they need to consider on Saturday, May 19 – the day of the wedding.

The council said it is important to keep emergency vehicle access available at all times and if a road closure is required, an application needs to be made in advance.

Tracey Wood, head of housing and community at Havant Borough Council, said: ‘The royal wedding will be one of the highlights of 2018 and I expect many residents will be looking to celebrate the occasion.
