Your Highness, your carriage awaits!
The horse-drawn coach that will transport the new princess Kate Middleton from Westminster Abbey has been revealed. A 109-year-old State Landau (pictured above) has been set aside for Kate and Prince William. The carriage was originally built for King Edward VII and is used by Queen Elizabeth when she entertains visiting heads of state.

Come rain or shine, the palace has a plan. If heavy rain fills the London skies on April 29th, the couple will ride in the famous glass Coach, which was used by Princess Diana on her wedding day 30 years ago. The car chosen to bring Kate and her father Michael Middleton to the Abbey was also revealed. It is the same Rolls Royce Phantom VI that was attacked by rioters in the past when it was carrying Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, to an event in December.

After the ceremony, which will last about an hour, William and Kate's carriage will lead a procession of five coaches carrying the Maid of Honor (Kate's sister, Pippa), Best Man, Prince Harry and the young pages and bridesmaids. One coach will carry Kate's parents, Carole and Michael, and Prince Charles and Camilla and another will seat the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.
