The wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank: Carriage and Horses

Published 12 October 2018

After the ceremony, the newly married couple will undertake a short Carriage Procession in the Scottish State Coach.

Originally known as the Cambridge Coach, the Scottish State Coach was remodelled in 1968–9 on Her Majesty's instruction to create a coach specifically for Scotland. The emblems of the Order of the Thistle, the highest order of chivalry in Scotland, and the Scottish version of the Royal Arms were painted on the sides.

The carriage will be pulled by four Windsor Grey horses: Plymouth, Milford Haven, Tyrone and Storm. There will be two outriders: Claudia and Sir Basil.

Windsor Grey horses play an important role in the ceremonial life of the Royal Family and the nation, and have been drawing the carriages of successive Monarchs and Members of the Royal Family since Queen Victoria's reign.

The carriage and horses are housed at the Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace.
