I wasn't in London for the wedding of Prince William and Kate, but I watched it live on TV. Thankfully the British weather behaved and allowed the couple to use the open carriage.
After the wedding service in Westminster Abbey, the royal couple were driven to Buckingham Palace in the open-topped State Laundau, a carriage built for King Edward VII in 1902, escorted by four white horses and followed by scarlet-clad troops on horseback.
And the Queen and Prince Philip followed in the Scottish State Coach — built in 1830. I remembered I had seen these carriages in March 2009 when I happened to be in London, and saw the Queen and the President of Mexico, so I went through my photos of 30 March.
Note - the photos are out of order since I transferred from Multiply, but I am too lazy to rearrange!!!
