Lego builds mat­ri­mo­nial cas­tle venue

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - BACK PAGE -

AT­TRAC­TION park Le­goland has un­veiled a minia­ture model of this month’s royal wed­ding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Wind­sor Cas­tle, built by a team of 11 model-mak­ers who used al­most 60 000 pieces of Lego bricks.

The replica in­cludes a 60-brick Markle in her wed­ding dress and veil, with Harry by her side. The cou­ple are rid­ing in a brick-built car­riage be­ing drawn by horses along Wind­sor Great Park Long Walk to­wards the cas­tle, sur­rounded by 500 spec­ta­tors, re­cre­at­ing the real life pro­ces­sion that is planned for the big day on May 19.

The scene is com­pleted by minia­ture mod­els of Queen El­iz­a­beth and the Duke of Ed­in­burgh along with best man Prince Wil­liam, his wife Kate and their chil­dren Prince Ge­orge and Princess Char­lotte, and Markle’s par­ents.

Lego said the wed­ding scene replica, which took 752 hours to build, will be on per­ma­nent dis­play at its theme park, just 5km from the real Wind­sor Cas­tle to the west of Lon­don. – Reuters
