Chariot chosen: Harry and Meghan reveal carriage pick for wedding procession
Published Wednesday, May 2, 2018 7:52AM EDT
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will ride in one of five Ascot Landau horse-drawn carriages during their procession through the town of Windsor after their May 19 wedding, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
The carriages are often used in official and ceremonial state events such as Coronations, Royal Weddings and State Visits.
Two of the Ascot Landaus were featured in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's 2011 wedding, carrying Harry as best man, along with the maid of honour, bridesmaids and page boys from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.

Meghan Markle’s Dad Thomas Markle Has Yet to Meet Prince Harry
Markle, 36, and Harry, 33, are “very much looking forward to welcoming” her family to Windsor for the May 19 ceremony, the statement revealed. “Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion. … Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry’s family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day.”
The Suits alum’s father will walk her down the aisle of St. George’s Chapel. The palace will be providing accommodation for her family for the wedding weekend; that information will be released soon. They will not be commenting on any other family members invited.
How to watch Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding in Canada
Planning an early morning viewing party? Here’s what you need to know.
s it terribly wrong to wear a fascinator at 7 a.m.?
Not when the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is at stake.
There’s no better time to gather around and a few of your bleary-eyed friends in the early hours on Saturday, May 19.
The royal wedding takes place in the afternoon at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. There will be plenty of pomp including a carriage ride and two receptions after the ceremony.
But because of the different time zone, that means in North America the festivities will begin at 7 a.m. Eastern Time or 4 a.m. Pacific Time.
And coverage will begin much earlier than that, with some Canadian broadcasters starting at least two hours earlier. (But for those who don’t think catching a glimpse of Posh and Becks heading into church is worth an early rise, then maybe you can sleep in for an extra hour.)
