Royal wedding: The Windsor homeowners hoping to cash in – BBC News

Windsor residents are listing their homes on Airbnb for royal wedding tourists.

By renting out their homes and parking spaces to tourists, now some locals are hoping to cash in and even fund their own major life events.

Bill Hutchinson, 37, and his partner Annie have listed their luxury three-bedroom cottage on home rental website Airbnb for a nightly rate of £3,500.

“We bought the house last year and we have had a baby so we were looking for ways to make some extra money,” he said.

Despite having no bookings yet, he remains hopeful with still six weeks to go until Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot on 19 May.
