The car which will transport Kate Middleton to her wedding at Westminster Abbey on April 29th has been revealed as the Queen’s Rolls Royce Phantom. However the future princess will leave the ceremony with her new husband, Prince William, in a horse drawn carriage to symbolise her ascension from commoner to fully fledged member of the royal family.
It’s been reported that the £1 million Rolls Royce was chosen by Kate Middleton herself for its large windows so as to allow the onlookers a good view of the bride as she arrives at her wedding to Prince William.
The luxury limo was gifted to the Queen to mark her 1977 Silver Jubilee, and is the same car in which Charles and Camilla were travelling in when they were attacked by a mob during protests before Christmas. The Rolls Royce is currently undergoing repair work following the incident, however a spokesperson for the Palace confirmed that the car will be ready in time for the big day.
The newlyweds will travel from Westminster Abbey after the wedding ceremony to the reception at Buckingham Palace in a horse drawn carriage, the same carriage which transported Charles and Diana on their wedding day back in 1981. The 1902 State Landau carriage was originally made for the coronation of Edward VII.
Another four wedding carriages will follow the bridal party on the big day carrying the bridesmaids and pageboys, also The Queen and Prince Phillip, and Kate’s parents and Charles and Camilla.
