Most recently, the Royal Mint, in conjunction with Harry and Meghan, have released a special edition Royal Wedding coin!

The carriage procession will see the couple ride from the castle through Windsor before returning up the Long Walk, a famous, tree-flanked straight promenade that leads to the castle gates. Per a statement from the royal family, the duo will tie the knot later this fall at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle-the same place where Harry and Meghan will say "I do" in just a few weeks.

The carriage the pair will ride in was built in 1883.

While we can all hope for a attractive sunny May day, given the temperamental British weather, the couple have also chosen a back-up carriage in the event of rain.

If it does rain, Harry and Meghan will travel in the Scottish State Coach.

These carriages have been used for Coronations, Royal Weddings and State Visits.

There are more than 100 carriages in the Royal Mews collection with five Ascot Landaus.

As we count down the days to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding (only 17 to go!), the royal couple have announced that they have selected the Ascot Landau carriage for their anticipated procession through Windsor Town on Saturday, May 19.

William and Kate used the Imperial State Landau on their wedding day, as it usually remains stationed in London. Harry travelled in one of them to the wedding of his elder brother William to Kate Middleton in 2011 when he acted as best man.
