London - The excitement was palpable as Britain’s armed forces took to the streets on Thursday to rehearse the carriage procession that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are to make through the streets of Windsor after their wedding ceremony this weekend.

After the hour-long ceremony at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday, the newlyweds will make a procession through the town’s ancient streets on a 19th Century Ascot Landau carriage pulled by Windsor Grey horses.

The carriage used for the dry-run was not the one that will be used in the real parade.

Volunteers told YOU they’re not sure how many people will be on the streets of Windsor on the big day, but police have said there could be more than 100 000.
