    The royal wedding is set to take place Saturday, May 19, but English police have been putting security measures for it into place for months, NBC News reported.

    Some of these measures include automatic license plate recognition technology, steel and concrete barriers outside the town to prevent vehicle attacks and dogs sniffing mailboxes. Around 3,000 police officers are expected to be deployed to Windsor, the town where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be married. Most police will not carry firearms, as is British tradition, however, armed officers will be in the streets, prepared to respond if needed. 

    “The smallest of things could go wrong and it could be regarded as a disaster in one way or another, so you always want to make sure you've done all your planning,” said former London Metropolitan Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe.

    More than 10,000 people are expected to visit the town where the wedding is being held.
