Cops BAN drones over Harry and Meghan's cottage as nation awaits Royal birth


It comes after a near miss between a pilot trying to get a snap of their house whilst flying through a busy Heathrow flight path.

Warnings have been posted near the couple’s home at Frogmore College, close to Windsor Home Park, warning wannabe pilots that it is illegal to fly the technology in the area.

According to The Sun, a yellow poster reads: “Police flight safety notice: Drones prohibited in this area.”

The signs have reportedly erected by Thames Valley Police on the main road through Windsor Home Park despite no open air events taking place any time soon.

Earlier this month a reckless rogue drone pilot tried to get aerial pictures of the Harry and Meghan’s home, risking disaster in the middle of a busy passenger jet flight path.

The police warnings now specifically call out “launching, landing or operating drones or remote controlled aircrafts” in the area.

The government introduced tighter drone restrictions earlier this year after Gatwick was brought to a halt by a rogue flying object.
