It seems not everyone is welcome to take part in the royal wedding mayhem this weekend. RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively British police are busy clearing the homeless out of the areas surrounding Windsor Castle, with what sources tell Radar is “as much force as possible.”
The purge comes after police were warned terrorists could pose as beggars to bomb Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day. But a source confessed to Radar that in reality, kicking out the vagrants is really about clearing “undesirable sights” from the area.
“There are no laws that can be invoked to remove the homeless from Windsor ahead of the royal wedding,” the source said, “These are the pressure tactics that will be used to move them on, to keep the area looking prim and proper.”
More than 100 thousand people are expected to line the streets outside the castle for the royal event, and homeless beggars were reportedly eager to accept any handouts from the crowd. But instead, their personal items are being confiscated and locked up, while they are being kicked out.
“Community wardens in Windsor have considerable powers when it comes to seeing off homeless people,” the source added. “They can question them, make their lives difficult and report them to police until their lives become so unbearable they don’t want to be there.”
In January, a local councilman proposed the clean-up, sharing fears that terrorists might pose as the desolate.
“I am incredibly concerned about people ‘ghosting’ in and lying in the streets with bags or leaving bags or depositing bombs in piles of bags etc. “I can only see the situation getting more dangerous frankly. I want to be ultra-cautious,” Tory councilor Simon Dudley wrote in an email to the Thames Valley Police Commissioner.
The wedding will be one of the most heavily guarded events of all time. Dogs and mounted patrols will be on duty, a no-fly zone will be in effect, and airport-style X ray scanners will be used for wedding visitors, along with bag searches.
And the homeless will apparently be far away, unable to take away or distract from the magic of the moment.
“It’s not very humane, but it is what it is,” the source summarized. “People who control the area would rather have the world seeing it look pretty than care for the poverty-stricken.”
