Royal Wedding Will Skip the Horse-Drawn Carriage

Prince William and Kate Middleton will arrive by car to their royal wedding, as security is stepped up after recent riots in London.  INSIDE EDITION has the latest details on the royal engagement.

Princess bride Kate Middleton is bucking tradition. Instead of arriving to her royal wedding in a horse-drawn glass carriage, like the one Princess Diana rode in on her wedding day, Kate is taking a car.

Kate's decision to drive to Westminster Abbey by car is apparently for security purposes, after Prince Charles and his wife Camilla were attacked in those tumultuous protests last month.

Royal expert Victoria Arbiter told INSIDE EDITION, "A car is certainly going to be much easier to bullet proof, and to take security measures. And I would imagine that after what happened to Charles and Camilla, those cars have all been reinforced. Another reason for being in the car, there is a lot more leg room, there's a lot more space. Kate can spread out. The dress can spread out, it can be layed out. So that when she arrives at the abbey, she's looking her tru bridal best."

It was announced that the wedding will take place at 11:00am on April 29th.

Well-wishers lining the streets will be able to get a glimpse of the new Princess once she ties the knot with Prince William. The newlyweds will take a traditional carriage ride past London's famous landmarks following the ceremony, just like William's parents.

Also like Charles and Diana, Kate and William will make a brief appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, where cheering crowds will hope to see the bride and groom share a kiss.

It was also announced that after the big event, William's father, Prince Charles, will host a private dinner followed by dancing for close friends and family.

Of course, what people really want to know is, who's designing Kate's dress? The bride-to-be is saving that news until later.
