The iconic church is currently closed to the public. A royal spokesperson told Reuters that the practice ceremonies will likely be going on the next two days, even if the bride and groom are not present.

“As with anybody’s wedding, you can imagine rehearsals happening up until the eve of the wedding,” the spokesman said.

The rehearsals themselves were executed with a military precision — literally, according to Janelle Howell, who began camping outside the church Tuesday for a peek at the royals.

“There were hundreds and hundreds of mounted military, all on horseback,” Howell told People. “And then the cars and coaches came. Dozens of them. And people got out of each car and entered the church, just like the guests will.

“It was quite the spectacle.”

In addition to guests and campers, more than 7,000 journalists are in town to cover Friday’s wedding. At least 60 cameras will be stationed along the procession route to the church.

Sherelle Newton, who was watching the proceedings, told People the rehearsals were mainly “everyone … figuring out where they should be on Friday.

“But they were careful to make sure the crowds would be able to see Kate,” she said.

“As with anybody’s wedding, you can imagine rehearsals happening up until the eve of the wedding,” the spokesman said.

As custom, following their final rehearsal, Kate will not see Prince William until Friday’s gala wedding at Westminster Abbey.
