After the ceremony at Westminster Abbey, the Bride and Groom sat in an open-topped 1902 State Landau  to travel to Buckingham Palace for their reception. The 1902 State Landau was specifically built for King Edward VII in 1902 and was intended to be used at his Coronation. It is usually used by The Queen to meet Foreign Heads of State when they arrive on State Visits to Britain. The Prince of Wales travelled to St Paul’s Cathedral in the 1902 State Landau for his wedding in 1981, returning in it with The Princess of Wales after the service. The Duke and Duchess of York also used it for their return to Buckingham Palace at their wedding in 1986.

They were flown from Buckingham Palace in a maroon Sikorsky S-76C Spirit from the Queen’s Helicopter Flight, which took off at 11.15am the next day. Before they boarded the aircraft, which bears a gold crest, Palace staff had carried out some of their luggage, including a bouquet of white blooms.
