Queues at Slough railway station for the train to Windsor Photo:

It has been confirmed that Windsor saw its busiest day on the road and rail network on the day of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding.

More than 100,000 people visited the town to see events unfold. There were long queues in the afternoon for trains along the route, particularly Slough.

Members of the public lined the streets of Windsor and the Long Walk to see the newly-wed couple in a carriage procession. The Royal family thanked the public for turning out to celebrate the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Great Western and South Western Railway say they managed to get everyone home but the rail networks were at capacity. It was the biggest operation ever of its type.
