Macdonald Windsor hotel has had TV crews pay a whopping £10,000 for suites with balconies overlooking the High Street, which will provide the best view of the newlyweds as they take part in a carriage procession down the main road. A hotel source told HELLO!: "The moment the date was announced all the hotels sold out online but the hotels along the parade kept all their street-facing rooms back. They're being sold now for an absolute fortune – they're all going to the media which makes life easier for everybody because of course those rooms have to be scrutinised for potential security issues too."
