Ahead of the nuptials, reports of stringent security measures at the wedding have come to light in response to the sighting of a what appeared to be a boat flying a black flag—similar to that of ISIS—at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival which fortunately turned out to be a hoax.

According to Page Six guests received a two-page security briefing by email which revealed that all guests will be required to carry a specially provided photo ID to get into the wedding celebrations. “It will be safer than the White House,” the email assured.
