LONDON - The much-discussed wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has already boosted the local tourism industry. The 33-year-old royal and the former Suits actress are poised to tie the knot on 19 May in St George' s Chapel

According to the New York Times, packages include:

  • The Original Tour: This company, which offers traditional hop-on hop-off bus tours throughout the city has added stops at Windsor Castle in the months leading up the wedding, giving those who want to see the venue a look before the nuptials take place.
  • Royal Wedding Celebration In England: Inside the British Monarchy: This 8-day tour beginning on May 16, provides accommodations for seven nights at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Kenilworth, 12 meals, an indoor but traditional "street party" at the hotel on the actual day of the wedding, meetings with royal staff members and sightseeing excursions at the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, and even Windsor Castle itself (albeit a few days after the wedding). The tour doesn't come cheap however, starting at $2,499 per person, not including airfare.

However, day tours usually offered by those companies, as well as others, will adjust their usual routes and schedules on the day of the wedding. Those that normally make stops at Windsor Castle will forego it for other destinations due to the pair's nuptials.
