Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Wedding Day Carriage Looks Magical, Naturally

The carriage will make its way down High Street, Sheet Street, King's Road and Albert Road before dropping the newly married pair off at Windsor Castle along the Long Walk.

It's been reported that Meghan will break from tradition on her wedding day by delivering a speech, according to The Sunday Times.

Actually, the carriage Cinderella rides to her ball looks like a beat-up station wagon compared with Markle and Prince Harry's.

The couple will likely be accompanied by a royal protection officer, or bodyguard, who may be dressed as a footman on the carriage.

The carriages are often used in official and ceremonial state events such as Coronations, Royal Weddings and State Visits.

Unthinkable! And so it is that the couple have selected not one but two carriages (one rain, one shine) for their procession through Windsor following the ceremony at St. George's Chapel.

Kensington Palace announced: "The carriage is one of five Ascot Landaus in the Royal Mews". It seems the Queen, Prince William and the rest of the family won't join them, as there is only one carriage now selected.

The carriage will be drawn by horses as it was done traditionally and four Windsor grey horses will be used to pull the carriage.

Of course, there is a backup plan in pace should the weather not cooperate on May 19.

And it is likely media organisations are in discussions with police for an exemption to allow them to report on the big day from a helicopter.

Thomas Markle Jr., aged 51, resident of Grant's Pass, Oregon, wrote a handwritten letter to Harry urging him not to marry Meghan, saying "it's not to late".

While William and Kate's wedding guests were ferried between Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace in a mini-bus, Harry and Markle's wedding guests will travel in style in state cars from the Royal Mews. He also claims he has not been invited to the royal wedding, which takes place on May 19.
