Carriage booked for royal newlyweds

Central Station | Feb 13, 2018
A horse-drawn carriage will take Prince Harry and his American bride Meghan Markle down Windsor's main street after they marry in the town's castle in May.

Following a noon ceremony in St George's Chapel the newlyweds will make a "short journey" in the carriage, royal minders say, leaving the castle where Queen Elizabeth has a weekend pad at around 1 pm.

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, "are very much looking forward to the day and to being able to share their celebrations with the public," we're also told.

After the ceremony the pair and their guests will move to St George's Hall for a reception, with that carriage ride allowing them to get a bit of fresh air along the way. Then Harry's dad, Prince Charles, will be hosting another reception for the newlyweds and "close friends and family."

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will officiate on May 19 as the couple exchange vows, while Dean of Windsor David Conner will conduct the wedding service.
