If you can’t get a standing position near the Windsor Castle on Saturday, you can still ring the royal wedding bells at Heathrow Airport.
If you don’t recall, Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 2 is aptly named “The Queen’s Terminal.” Chief Operating Officer Chris Garton said:
“At Heathrow, we’re passionate about creating memorable experiences for all our passengers and certainly want our travellers to enjoy the royal wedding celebration in style.”
This means on Saturday, every TV screen throughout all terminals will be on BBC News 24 – the station broadcasting the royal wedding live, including all the surrounding wedding-day activities. In Terminal 3 and 4, there will be giant video screens featuring BBC1, also covering royal wedding festivities.
Since Harry and Meghan chose a non-traditional lemon elderflower wedding cake with buttercream frosting, there will be 1,000 pieces of lemon and elderflower cupcakes available to passengers in Terminal 2, 3, 4, and 5. Get there between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and you’ll taste the royal wedding gateau!
In Terminal 2, aka: Queen’s Terminal, expect to receive wedding day treats, snacks, and royal-related activities. There will be actors dressed in a Queen’s Guard, a Royal Trumpeter, and a Beefeater who you can snap photos with.
As home to royal weddings throughout history, London will be expecting 3.4% more visitors this week than this time last year. On Saturday, the day of the royal wedding, there will be more than 109,000 travelers arriving in Heathrow.
