After the ceremony the newly married couple will undertake a short carriage procession in the Scottish State Coach.

Originally known as the Cambridge Coach, the Scottish State Coach was remodelled in 1968-9 on the Queen's instruction to create a coach specifically for Scotland. 

The carriage will be pulled by four Windsor Grey horses: Plymouth, Milford Haven, Tyrone and Storm. There will be two outriders: Claudia and Sir Basil.

Crowds are now waiting for the carriage procession

And the bride has arrived....

Princess Eugenie is wearing a dress designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, who founded the British based label Peter Pilotto.

The dress was developed layer by layer, constructing it from the corset and the complex underskirt to the fitted bodice and full pleated skirt.

It features a neckline that folds around the shoulders to a low back that drapes into a flowing full length train.

The low back feature on the dress was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis.
