Diana's carriage for Kate
The car damaged when the Prince of Wales was caught up in violent student protests will take Kate Middleton to Westminster Abbey on her wedding day, it has been confirmed. The high-top Rolls Royce, presented to the Queen for her Silver Jubilee, is now being refurbished and requires specialist paint restoration and glass work. But Buckingham Palace said it should be ready in time for the ceremony on April 29 as the damage caused by protesters in December was not extensive and repairs are purely aesthetic. "It's undergoing a kind of 60 minute makeover at the moment," said Alex Garty, transport manager at the Royal Mews.
