Pippa Middleton’s wedding: all the security rumours from ‘phone police’ to secret passwords and wristbands

Pippa Middleton1 s wedding to James Matthews2 has been described as the society event of the year, attended by a mixture of royals, sports superstars, celebrities and even members of the public.

But surprisingly, in this day and age of smartphones and social media, not one photo from inside the church or lavish reception has emerged3 , thanks to a range of heavy security measures.

While some – private security men, royal protection officers and CCTV – seem fairly standard, other rumoured measures verge on the bizarre, such as claims of phone police patrolling guests and issuing warnings, and special passwords created months ago. Mirror Celebs rounds up the security rumours:

Phone police patrol guests

This claim, which surfaced in the Daily Mail4 , alleges that a team of so called phone police were on hand during the day to stop guests taking any pictures on their mobile phones.

Apparently guests were given one warning if they did take such photos, but a second breach could result in being asked to leave the ceremony. While it s all totally unconfirmed by either Pippa or James, the fact that ZERO social media snaps have so far emerged despite a guest list of several hundred means that either a) guests were happy to oblige or b) the phone police did a very good job!

Social media picture ban

As well as phone police allegedly on duty, it s reported that Pippa asked guests not to post any pictures to social media5 . If true, she certainly wouldn t be the first high profile bride to do so .

Other famed weddings rumoured to have instilled a social media ban include Kim Kardashian and Kanye West s nuptials in 2014.

A source said before the nuptials: Pippa has complete control over the wedding 6 , right down to the finest details.

Guests have been told they will be banned from taking in cameras, although it is understood that they will be allowed to keep their phones . However, there s a strict no photos policy in place.

Pippa and James want it to be a very private event and do not want anything to distract from the fact they want it to remain a classy affair.

However, one guest who seemed to defy such a ban was Pippa’s uncle Gary Goldsmith, who merrily shared selfies of himself and daughter Tallulah7 ahead of the church service and in their car en route . He wasn’t in attendance at the reception, though, so didn’t post any photos from there.

Wristbands

One local, Elizabeth Mary Reeves, told BBC News8 that some lucky villagers were given silver wristbands with the date of the wedding enscribed on them, which allowed them access to the grounds of St . Mark’s Church and the chance to get closer to the wedding party.

Special passwords

According to E ! News9 , wedding guests were assigned a special password three months ago that was unique to them . When they arrived for the reception, guests had to show photo ID and have their special password checked off a list. They had to send their passport photo beforehand for recognitiion.

Scotland Yard royal protection officers

With several senior royals in attendance including Prince William, Prince Harry, Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Beatrice, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, perhaps it’s no surprise that security was super tight around the church and reception.

It’s reported Scotland Yard royalty protection officers were on hand during the day, while Daily Mail10 says armed police patrolled in a BMW 4×4.

No-fly zone over venue

Again, with so many senior royals present, it’s reported a no-fly zone was imposed over Bucklebury and Englefield from Friday at 6am until Sunday at 3pm. ITV News11 reports that ban includes flying drones, aircraft, balloons, kites and parachutes.

Four ex SAS soldiers patrolling the grounds

It was reported that four former SAS soldiers now working in private security had been drafted in to help with security on the day.

A source told The Sun12 ahead of the nuptials: There s a lot of security . It s as tight as you can get . They ve had dogs out all night . Four SAS men have been plotted up and swept the place for the last few days . They are like ghosts . You d never see them.”

Extra CCTV installed

According to Daily Mail13 , extra CCTV was installed around the church.

A security guard said: “We are leaving nothing to chance.”

Other notable guests included TV presenter Donna Air, who is James Middleton s girlfriend, Princess Beatrice and tennis superstar Roger Federer, who attended with his wife Mirka. Prince George and Princess Charlotte served as page boy and flower girl.

What everyone wore to Pippa’s wedding

After the church service at St . Mark’s, guests retreated to nearby Englefield House for champagne and toasts, before travelling to the Middleton family home, where a 100,000 marquee had been erected in the gardens.

As well as the usual speeches, drinks, gourmet meal and canapes, guests at the reception were also treated to a flyover by a World War II Spitfire15 .

The vintage aircraft buzzed over the skies above the 100,000 glass marquee in the Middleton family garden during the evening reception after the Middletons reportedly warned neighbours to expect a bit of noise and apologised for any inconvenience.

A school that Royals attend on the grounds of Windsor Castle suffered a security breach yesterday when an intruder gained access while pretending to be a parent. An unknown woman was seen with pupils at St George’s School during an open morning at the exclusive 7,000-a-term establishment. After the incident, parents said that they had repeatedly requested increased security at the school but their pleas were seemingly ignored.

An unknown woman was seen with pupils at St George’s School during an open morning at the exclusive 7,000-a-term establishment that is attended by Royals

‘We have repeatedly complained about the lack of security at St George’s but they don’t seem to be taking it seriously,’ a mother said last night as reported by The Sun3.

‘It’s shocking she could get in so easily it could have been a kidnapper, terrorist, paedophile or anything . Lessons will have to be learned . Parents will not let this lie.’

‘It’s shocking she could get in so easily it could have been a kidnapper, terrorist, paedophile or anything . Lessons will have to be learned . Parents will not let this lie’ a parent said

Guilty plea: Anthony Brailsford, 69, admitted repeatedly rubbing a young boy s buttocks Another parent said: ‘This highlights an alarming lack of security . Paying 20,000 a year to send a child there, you expect better.’

Headmaster Chris McDade confirmed to The Sun that the intruder was escorted out by staff and police were investigating the incident. Princess Eugenie is a past pupil of the school and Prince Edward’s son and daughter currently attend there. Other pupils include the choristers of St George s chapel – a place of royal worship situated behind the school in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The unisex day and boarding school takes pupils aged three years to 13 years. This is the second recent controversy to hit the school after a former headmaster admitted sexually assaulting boys in his Latin classes and watching others shower naked in the 1990’s. Anthony Brailsford, 69, who was acting headmaster of the school in Windsor Castle, Berkshire, admitted last year to repeatedly rubbing a young boy s buttocks.

He received a six-month suspended prison sentence in January at Reading Crown Court for the historic abuse.
