It would not be a proper Royal wedding without a horse-drawn carriage. Royal officials say Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have chosen an open-topped Ascot Landau from the collection of royal carriages to use in their wedding procession.

The couple’s office said on Wednesday that after their 19 May wedding the newlyweds will take the carriage, pulled by four horses, from Windsor Castle through the town centre and back for their reception.

Kensington Palace says the couple hope it will be “a memorable moment for everyone who has gathered together in Windsor to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day”.

If it rains, the couple will use the Scottish Coach, which has a glass roof.
