Mounted police will be carrying out reassurance patrols today and next week ahead of the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York to Jack Brooksbank on Friday.

Those in the town on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday may catch a glimpse of Odin and Atlas and their riders PC Patrick Frost and PC Tracey Pool on the Long Walk and in Windsor town centre, deployed as part of the wider security operation.

PC Frost, who will be riding Atlas, said: “Members of the Mounted Section will be engaging with the public and providing high visibility patrols in Windsor in the run-up to the Royal Wedding. Our role is public reassurance and engagement so if anyone would like to come up and say hello and meet the horses we would encourage them to do so.”

On the day of the wedding they will be joined by four further horses from Thames Valley Police’s Mounted Section and their riders.

PC Frost added: “We are proud to be part of this special event and on the day of the wedding we will be monitoring the crowds and ensuring their safety from our vantage point as part of the wider security operation.

“Please feel free to approach us if you have any concerns that you wish to raise.”
