That's not quite true. Harry's wedding involved closed down roads and had to put in airport security scanners among other security measures during the day which caused a lot of delays and such in getting around town. But it wasn't as disruptive because it's not a workday where most people have to be at places by a certain time. The Wessexes' wedding was also on a Saturday to minimize disruption as no holiday is expected. However, Eugenie's wedding is on a weekday. I'm at a loss as to why they didn't just pick the Saturday if they wanted a public wedding? The only wedding since the Yorks' wedding that was not intended to be on either a holiday or weekend was Prince Charles and Camilla's blessing. But I don't believe that was on the same scale in terms of road closures and such.
Since the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William will all be attending this wedding, yes security will be very high. Just having that many heirs in one place raises security levels exponentially.
And the wedding is on a Friday in Windsor, so not too disruptive. They must have a good reason for the wedding to be on Friday and not Saturday.
