Prince William And Kate Middleton To Use Horse-Drawn Carriage On Wedding Day
We’ve continually been impressed by how green this couple seems to be; exchanging fair trade rings, donating their wedding cake to the homeless, moving into an eco-mansion, and asking for charity donations instead of wedding gifts. It had also been rumored that the couple would forgo the traditional horse-drawn carriage in favor of cars for the ceremony, but that rumor is officially false— as it has been announced that not one, but five horse-drawn carriages will make up the wedding procession.
The royal couple are reportedly using the 1902 State Landau coach that Prince Charles and Princess Diana used for their 1981 wedding, it will take the bride and groom from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace, where wedding celebrations will continue.
In total there is expected to be five horse-drawn carriages, with the 2nd and 3rd carriages taking the Best Man, Prince Harry, and the Maid of Honor, Pippa Middleton (Kate’s sister). The 4th carriage hosting Queen Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh, while the 5th and final carriage will cart Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles.
Plenty of celebs have spoken out against the use of horse-drawn carriages, with Glee actress Lea Michelle being the face of a PETA campaign against the practice in Central Park, and Perfect Couples star Olivia Munn chastising “Today Show” host Hota Kotb on live TV for using a horse-drawn carriage.
