The royal wedding procession will travel from Buckingham Palace, the home of Queen Elizabeth II, and the adjacent Clarence House, which is the home of her son the Prince of Wales and where Prince William will begin his wedding-day journey, to Westminster Abbey where the ceremony takes place. It's a distance of about 1.5 kilometers.

Police will turn the procession route and the areas around it into a security zone. The public will not be allowed on the processional route during the ceremony, but there will be hundreds of thousands watching the procession and in public areas next to it like Green Park, Trafalgar Square and St James' Park.

Plain clothes policemen will mix with the crowds, the Metropolitan Police confirmed, and media have reported that armed marksmen will be on rooftops in the area. In addition there are 1700 serving soldiers taking part in the event, lining the route and acting as ceremonial escorts for the wedding parade.
