1902 Royal Landau coach

Those who tuned into it shouldn't have been disappointed:- it was pageantry galore at the Royal Wedding in London yesterday, something the English excel in, and this is the sight that many thronged The Mall to see.  The 1902 State Landau the newlyweds are seated in was built specifically for King Edward VII in 1902 to be used at his Coronation. It is the carriage in most general use at the Royal Mews and is usually used by The Queen to meet Foreign Heads of State when they arrive on State Visits to Britain.
