Prince William's fiancee Kate Middleton plans to arrive at Westminister Abbey in the Rolls-Royce that was damaged in the December attack on Prince Charles and his wife Camilla. The pair were attacked by student protesters.
The claret and black 1977 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI is to have its paintwork and windows repaired having been damaged during a student attack. The students were protesting hikes in university fees in Britain.
Alex Garty, transport manager at Buckingham Palace told AP "There was paint damage and damage to the glass...The repairs are ongoing. We're using that opportunity to give her a 60-minute makeover, so she will look her best for the wedding."
The bride has opted to travel to the church by car instead of a horse and carriage. After they are wed Prince William and Middleton will travel in a horse-drawn carriage to Buckingham Palace. If the weather turns bad they will use the "Glass Coach" with a fixed roof.
The next carriage will carry Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, followed by a carriage with Prince Charles, Camilla, the duchess of Cornwall, and Michael and Carole Middleton, the bride's parents.
