The carriage used by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to celebrate their wedding with a procession through Windsor has gone on display.

Meghan and Harry were cheered by more than 100,000 people when they travelled through the streets of the Berkshire town on May 19.

The spectacle gave well-wishers the chance to share in the couple’s big day, and the Ascot Landau can now be seen by the public at the Royal Mews in central London.

Speaking before the royal wedding, Crown Equerry Colonel Toby Browne, who runs the Royal Mews, said the type of carriage was one Harry knew well as two Landaus were used during the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s carriage procession after they married in 2011.

Speaking about Harry, Col Browne said at the time: “He was best man at his brother’s wedding so he rode in one of these with the bridesmaids and pages as part of the procession following the wedding.

“But he’s also been in the Queen’s procession at the royal meeting at Ascot, so he’s ridden in these quite regularly.”

Four horses, Windsor Greys, pulled Meghan and Harry’s carriage – Milford Haven, Storm, Plymouth and Tyrone.

Col Browne explained Landaus are also used at the end of the annual St George’s Chapel Garter Service, to drive members of the royal family up the hill to Windsor Castle.
