Homeless near Windsor Castle give belongings to police officers

Homeless near Windsor Castle give belongings to police officers

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot in St George's Chapel, Windsor, in a service starting at midday on Saturday 19 May. "There are people here a week, maybe even two weeks, before the wedding". So if you're thinking of flying a little something overhead to get a glimpse of the happy couple plus their guests and well-wishers, you'll have the Thames Valley Police to answer to.

But the publicity inspired Sussex Homeless Support to offer its help to support homeless people this weekend rather than move them on.

The leader of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead provoked an outcry in January when he tweeted about "an epidemic of rough sleeping and vagrancy in Windsor".

His comments sparked a national row and were criticised by Prime Minister Theresa May, MP for neighbouring Maidenhead, and homeless charities.

James said Dudley's comments were "crass" but had "put a really useful spotlight on the issue". Opposition politicians have laid the blame on severe cuts to public spending. I understand they have people who they employ and stuff like that. "The council had said they wouldn't move homeless people on but that's what it looks like", Cheeseman said.

Polly Neate, CEO of United Kingdom homelessness charity Shelter, said, "It shouldn't be a case of out of sight, out of mind". But we help other countries when there's enough British people who need help'.

Pink Hilariously Burns Twitter Troll Who Criticised Her Appearance
Several of Pink's fans cheered at the concept of her still kicking and screaming on stage at almost 40-aerial stunts included. Well, Pink was not having any of that troll's words! The information comes after a critic age-shamed the pop star this week.

More than 100,000 people are expected to line the streets of Windsor for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day.

"A scheme has been set up for those who choose, to store their belongings at the Windsor Homeless Project during the Royal Wedding, and our officers have been assisting with transport of belongings, however this is entirely voluntary to ensure the safety of the homeless community". Anyone with large items that are deemed to be a security risk are likely to have those items removed'.

The Windsor Homeless Project, who are working with the police to store rough sleeper's belongings, are also selling commemorative wedding memorabilia to raise money.

Slough Homeless Our Concern has said launched an "alternative royal wedding list" with the help of Patchwork, a platform that allows people to share their wedding wish lists. "Because if they don't need toasters and towels, shelters definitely do!"

With mere days to go until Harry and Meghan's wedding, the Queen has agreed to the banning of any drones or low-flying aircrafts over Windsor Castle on Saturday, whether during the cermony or into the evening festivities.
