Prince William and Kate Middleton will ride in the 109-year-old state landau carriage following their wedding at Westminster Abbey. The open top landau is the same one that took Prince Charles to the church when he married Princess Diana.

After exchanging vows at Westminster Abbey on April 29, Prince William and Kate Middleton will leave the church in the 109-year-old State Landau horse and coach.


The carriage, which was built by Hoopers for King Edward VII, has an open top and will give onlookers a great view of the couple as they make their way to Buckingham Palace. The landau has often been used by Queen Elizabeth for entertaining heads of state.

On her way to the Abbey, Kate will travel with her father Michael in a 1977 Rolls Royce Phantom VI. The classic car is the same one which Prince Charles and his wife Camilla Parker Bowles were riding in when they were attacked by rioters in December.

After the ceremony, William and Kate’s carriage will lead a procession of five coaches carrying the wedding party and parents of the bride and groom.

Should it rain on their wedding day, the newlyweds will leave in the 1881 Glass Coach used by Princess Diana on her wedding day.
