Police are still maintaining a heavy presence in the Berkshire town as the newly married Duke and Duchess of Sussex prepare to head back to London at some point this afternoon.

Elsewhere in Windsor, relatively few signs remained of the festivities, pomp and pageantry that went into staging the royal wedding - apart from innumerable Union Flags still adorning the streets.

"There was an articulated lorry taking the barriers away when I got into work at seven, they were all taken down overnight.

"The place is really tidy, you wouldn't think anything happened. The clean-up operation began very soon afterwards, it's very well planned and executed."

As royal fans waited for any sign of newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan on Sunday morning, they instead saw the Queen in a Range Rover being driven past the entrance of Windsor Farm shop.

The Queen regularly attends the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor Great Park.
