  • We can't quite believe it's already been over two months since Prince Harry married Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle - but we're still reflecting on one of the most lovely days ever in royal history.

    On the big day, the entire world was left stunned by almost every aspect of the wedding – from the Duchess’ stunning dress, to the moving gospel choir, and the huge crowds ready to meet the couple in Windsor.

    And now, one important part of the day has gone on display, meaning we can all catch a glimpse of it for ourselves.

    Meghan and Harry’s chosen Ascot Landau carriage, which the newlyweds travelled around Windsor town in, is now on public display at the Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex took the stunning mode of transport through Windsor Castle and all the way down the Long Walk, waving to the thousands of gathered fans as they went. They then headed on a 20-minute ride through the town, which was also packed full of well-wishers.

    Ahead of the wedding, the head of the royal mews, Crown Equerry Colonel Toby Browne, revealed why the couple chosen the carriage for their big day.

    He explained, “It was selected because it’s a wonderfully bright, small, lovely carriage. Very easy for people to see, the passengers can sit up quite high – so there’s lots of visibility for everybody.”

    The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace is the ideal place to showcase this important piece of the couple’s day, as the stables have long been the place to share many of the royal family’s official methods of transport – including carriages and coaches.

    Harry and Meghan’s chosen carriage will be on display from tomorrow (21st July) until 30th September – so if you want to see it for yourself, you’ll need to be quick! Tickets cost just £11 for an adult. Buy yours here.

    The Ascot Landau carriages history actually stretches back much further than Meghan and Harry’s 19th May wedding however. Traditionally, the fleet of carriages is used annually for the royal procession into Royal Ascot – and the couple actually travelled in one again during their visit to the horse-racing event in June.

    If you do decide to pay a visit to the carriage at the Royal Mews, you’ll also be able to catch a glimpse of some more iconic royal pieces.

    Also on display there is the Gold State Coach, which has been used at every coronation since George VI in 1821.

    Guests can also see the the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee coach, the newest coach at the Mews and one of the grandest too.
