At the end of their wedding service at Westminster Abbey, Prince William and Kate Middleton will travel back to Buckingham Palace through streets lined with spectators.  Here’s the plan:

The State Landau will carry William & Kate to Westminster Abbey

For good weather, the 1902 State Landau used by Prince Charles & Diana during their wedding. In the event of severely wet weather, The Glass Coach Diana used on her way to St. Paul’s.

There will be five horse-drawn carriages in the Carriage Procession from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.

Carriage #1 (State landau or glass coach) William & Kate.
Carriages #2 & #3 (Ascot Landaus) carrying the Best Man, Maid of Honour and Bridesmaids.
Carriage #4 (Semi-State Landau) carrying The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.
Carriage #5 (Semi-State Landau) carrying Prince Charles, Camilla, with Mike and Carole Middleton

Kate Middleton will arrive at the Abbey with the Rolls-Royce Phantom VI that Prince Charles and Camilla were in when they were attacked by student protesters. It’s currently under repair.
