Prince William intends a sneak peek at the diamond-studded royal wedding carriage
Rumors of Prince William and his girlfriend walking down the aisle have been surfacing every now and then. The latest on their much awaited marital status is that William will visit Jim Frecklington at his Sydney workshop to have a look at the royal carriage that will reportedly carry him and girlfriend Kate Middleton on their wedding day. The carriage is being hand-built by Jim and is getting finished in time for the pair’s soon-to-be announced wedding. Decorated with 24 diamonds, 130 sapphires and more than 400 books of gold leaf, this beautiful carriage will carry the newly married couple from the church after their wedding service.
An exclusive carriage, the timber used for building it has come from the Tower of London, Lord Nelson’s HMS Victory and Henry VIII’s warship The Mary Rose. William will even sit above a fragment taken from Scotland’s Stone of Scone, used in the coronation of monarchs for generations. Master craftsman has spent more than six years building the royal golden vehicle christened the new State Coach Britannia.
William is rumored to make a private visit to the workshop on Tuesday when he arrives in Sydney on his first official overseas visit from New Zealand. This fairytale carriage is sure to be the star attraction at the much awaited wedding.
