Royal ride gets a street re­hearsal

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - One Day To Go Wedding Of The Decade - ANNABEL HEN­NESSY

HUN­DREDS of soldiers with star­ring roles in the royal wed­ding were put through their paces in Wind­sor on Thurs­day as Kens­ing­ton Palace con­ducted its only wed­ding dress re­hearsal.

More than 250 soldiers and mem­bers of the Bri­tish armed forces took to the streets of Wind­sor at 11.30am lo­cal time to prac­tice the car­riage pro­ces­sion Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will make on Sat­ur­day.

Thou­sands of royal fans turned up to watch the pro­ces­sion and get a glimpse of the car­riage Prince Harry and his bride will ride in dur­ing their 25minute pro­ces­sion.

The car­riage be­ing used is an As­cot Lan­dau, the same one Harry rode in dur­ing Prince Wil­liam and Cather­ine’s 2011 wed­ding. It is be­ing pulled by the fa­mous Wind­sor grey horses, in­clud­ing two stal­lions Storm and Ty­rone. Fol­low­ing the car­riage were mem­bers of the Band Of The Blues who per­formed a fan­fare on drums and trum­pets.
