STREET parties are set to pop up across Dorset as the county gets ready to celebrate the royal wedding.

There have been a total of 13 applications for road closures in Bournemouth and 14 in Poole.

Dorset County Council are also processing applications but have not yet revealed how many.

Most parties appear to be taking place in the Southbourne area of Bournemouth.

Applications to Bournemouth council have been submitted for Athelstan Road, Baring Road, Browning Avenue, Curzon Road, Geneva Avenue, Grenfell Road, Leeson Road, Lombard Avenue, McKinley Road, Petit Road, Stamford Road and Watcombe Road.

No further applications will be accepted because the deadline has passed to inform emergency services of the road closures.

Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle on Saturday May 19 at St George's Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Millions of people around the world are expected to watch the ceremony on television with thousands expected to make the trip to Windsor in the hope of catching a glimpse of the royal couple.

Street parties are a traditional way of celebrating royal occasions with communities getting together to celebrate.

Streets are often decorated with bunting and residents gather outdoors to share food and drink and enjoy the occasion.

There will be a public celebration in Ringwood with a big screen set up in Market Place and also a free garden party in Westover Gardens, off Westover Road in Bournemouth the day after the wedding. It will include live music, afternoon tea, a photobooth and crafts for children.
