Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will make a “short journey” through Windsor in an Ascot Landau carriage to allow the public to catch a glimpse of them after their wedding, Kensington Palace has confirmed.The newlyweds will travel in the same carriage Prince Harry used in the procession at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, when he was surrounded by small bridesmaids and page boys.His own wedding procession, on May 19, will use just the one open-topped carriage, meaning the public will not see the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, or their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and newborn Prince Louis.Prince Harry and Ms Markle visited the royal mews at Buckingham Palace to select the Ascot Landau, which will now be the centre piece of public celebrations after they marry in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.Kensington Palace said: “Prince Harry and Ms Markle are very much looking forward to this short journey which they hope will be a memorable moment for everyone who has gathered together in Windsor to enjoy the atmosphere of this special day.” The Ascot Landau carriageCredit:PA Crown Equerry Colonel Toby Browne, who runs the royal mews, said the type of carriage chosen is one Harry knows well as two Landaus were used during William and Kate’s carriage procession after they married in 2011.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at their weddingCredit:AP Philip Barnard-Brown, Senior Coachman to the Queen, will ride Milford Haven for the procession and describes him as a “special horse”.He said: “He normally has a lead position because he’s a very quiet horse and you’ll naturally try and put your quietest horses in the lead.“Because it’s going to be a very busy day and very noisy, we always choose our safest, most reliable horses. We tend to go for the older horses that have been around and done it before and we know are reliable.” Six horses, Windsor Greys, will be included the procession ride.A team of four, Milford Haven, Plymouth and father and son Storm and Tyrone, will pull the Landau and two others – Sir Basil and Londonderry – will be outriders.All have been involved in high profile events before, including the Spanish state visit last year, Royal Ascot, Trooping the Colour, the State Opening of Parliament and the Lord Mayor’s Show. Storm is a veteran of Royal weddings, also working on the streets of London for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011. He explained the Landaus are also used at the end of the annual St George’s Chapel Garter Service to drive members of the royal family up the hill to Windsor Castle, and Harry’s carriage is in pristine condition as it was refurbished last year. If it rains on the wedding day, the wet weather option is the Scottish State Coach. Built in 1830, a new top was created in 1969 with large windows, and a partial glass roof, to allow spectators to see the passengers.Col Browne added: “The fair weather option, the Ascot Landau, it was selected because it’s a wonderfully bright, small, lovely carriage. Very easy for people to see, the passengers can sit up quite high – so there’s lots of visibility for everybody.”It was built in 1883, it’s one of five that we have, most of them are down in Windsor, we always keep one in London for occasions.” Prince Edward and Sophie during their Windsor wedding carriage rideCredit:AFP Other members of the Royal Family will not join the carriage processionCredit:Getty “They will be just a short distance in front of the carriage itself and of course in front of them and behind the carriage will be the Household Cavalry travelling escort.” Col Browne said: “He was best man at his brother’s wedding so he rode in one of these with the bridesmaids and pages as part of the procession following the wedding.”But he’s also been in the Queen’s procession at the royal meeting at Ascot, so he’s ridden in these quite regularly.”The carriage procession will begin at 1pm after the wedding service, with the newlyweds driven along Castle Hill, into Windsor town centre before returning along the famous Long Walk for their reception.
