With three weeks to go, Jeremy Hunt offers advice to Royal Wedding visitors to London to help them get the best out of the day

The Royal Wedding on 29 April will be watched live on TV by hundreds of millions of people

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Huge numbers will be coming into central London to see the spectacle as it happens. To help these visitors have the best possible experience on the day, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt today urged them to keep abreast of information through online sources and the stewards who will be working in the capital on the day:

  • is the official Clarence House site for details of the service and the procession, along with news about Prince William and Catherine Middleton and their preparations for the day

  • is the Government site with authorised details of how to get to London on the day, where facilities will be and a wealth of information to help people have a happy, safe and memorable day

On the day itself, a large team of official stewards will be on hand to offer advice, point people in the right direction and offer assistance as required.

Jeremy Hunt said:

“First and foremost, 29 April will be Prince William and Miss Middleton’s day, but it will also be a magical occasion for the nation.

“The television audience could run to billions, but huge numbers will want to be there on the streets in person. Following information on the directgov website will help make sure it is an enjoyable day out. This will be kept up to date by the minute for those out and about with smartphones - but there will also be plenty of stewards on hand to give the latest advice.”
