Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Just Chose Their Wedding Day Transportation—and It's Straight Out of a Fairy Tale
Hear ye, hear ye: Your royal Uber is here!
OK, OK. So Meghan Markle and Prince Harry definitely won't be ride-sharing to their wedding (although, they do love to buck tradition, do they not?). But they have announced their royal transportation for their big day, and it's the most fairy-tale mode of transit ever: a horse-drawn carriage.
Yep, Kensington Palace announced today that the bride and groom will cruise around Windsor Town and Castle Hill after they say "I do" on May 19 in a horse-drawn open-air Ascot Landau, one of more than 100 carriages in the Royal Mews collections. Although it's a teeny bit subtler than Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal whip back in 2011, it's still got all the flair of the traditional English monarchy.
The Ascot Landau will be pulled by a father-and-son team of Windsor Grey horses named Storm and Tyrone and joined by an Escort of the Household Cavalry Regiment, Harry's army regiment. In the event of rain, the couple will settle for a glass-roofed Scottish State Coach built in 1830. Bummer.
BRB, off to practice our royal wave for the big day.
