Honey, they shrunk the royal wedding!
Workers at Legoland Windsor Resort have spent more than 750 hours building a miniature version of the Royal wedding that will take place on May 19.
To honor future duchess Meghan Markle and her soon-to-be husband Prince Harry, the U.K. resort built their own Windsor Castle to display in their ‘Miniland’ attraction, a part of the park that replicates miniature models of buildings and landmarks.
This mini-royal wedding has it all.
For starters, their Windsor Castle, made of nearly 40,000 Lego bricks, took eight model makers to build. The resort said it will keep the castle as a permanent display in honor of the ceremony.
“With the Royal wedding happening just down the road, it felt only right to celebrate their special day with a new royal scene and it was a real thrill to be able to immortalize our local Castle in LEGO bricks for the first time ever,” Paula Laughton, the head model maker at the Legoland Windsor Resort, said in a statement.
The newlyweds are seen either standing side-by-side in front of the castle or sitting in their Ascot Landau carriage pulled by two horses.
Markle stands at 10 centimeters tall, wearing her white gown and veil. She is accompanied by her prince, who catches the eye perfectly with his bright, red hair and buttoned uniform.
Also included in the mini-wedding are their families and a variety of A-list guests.
It wouldn’t be a royal wedding without the Queen, who makes an appearance in the model along with The Duke of Edinburgh. Also portrayed are Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, plus Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. Even Meghan Markle’s parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, appear in the Lego wedding.
Also standing out amid the 500 guests are likenesses of Sir Elton John, sporting tinted rose glasses, and Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell of the Spice Girls, wearing her famous Union Jack dress.
"We can’t wait to see our guests’ reaction to the royal tribute and our magnificent new Windsor Castle," Laughton said.
