On Saturday 19th May 2018, we acquired the Royal Wedding procession route through Windsor, UK. Over 100,000 people from across the world lined the procession route and gathering crowds can be seen in this acquisition by Pléiades, taken at 11.32am local time. Following the ceremony, a horse-drawn carriage took Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle through the town and along the tree-lined Long Walk in Windsor Great Park.
