Royal ride gets a street rehearsal
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.
