The Royal Bride's Ride: How Kate Middleton Will Roll to Her Wedding

The Royal Bride's Ride: How Kate Middleton Will Roll to Her Wedding

It looks like Kate Middleton has the "something old" portion of her wedding gear covered. The official word from Buckingham Palace is that the royal bride-to-be will arrive at Westminster Abbey in a 1977 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI; the same car attacked by student protesters as it carried Prince Charles and his wife (at the time) Camilla back on December 9.

Alex Garty, transport manager at Buckingham Palace, states that even though the car sustained a broken window and extensive paint damage during the 'attack', it will be perfectly prepped and repaired for the April 29 ceremony. 

Afterwards, the couple will ride back to the palace in a decisively more old school 1902 State Landau carriage, unless it rains. If the tropical English skies open, the newlyweds will ride in an even older 1881 Glass Coach. Now that's proper.
