Jack Morton has been commissioned to manage the live sites in Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square as hundreds of thousands are expected to line the capital in celebration of William and Kate’s big day.

'The Royal Parks is very proud of the role it is playing in making the Royal Wedding a day to remember, from preparing the procession route along The Mall, to ensuring the parks next to Buckingham Palace look their very best," said The Royal Parks chief cxecutive Mark Camley.

"It's wonderful to be hosting screens in Hyde Park, where we look forward to welcoming visitors from across London, the UK and the world to watch the event and enjoy the atmosphere. Set within the lovely surroundings of the Royal Park of Hyde Park, there can be no more beautiful – or fittingly regal – place to celebrate this happy occasion."

360° Creative Event Services is supplying seven screens for various events, including one in Warwick Castle for the royal-themed Leamington Live weekend.

Separately, Piggotts, part of the Crown Group is providing five marquees, flags, banners for the media compound at Green Park, outside of Buckingham Palace. Piggotts has also supplied all the flags and bunting on Regent Street, as well as the Union Jacks on the Mall.
