West Hampstead horses to star in the Royal wedding

The silver-maned stallions will escort the Royal Carriage from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace

With Royal wedding excitement hitting fever pitch even these stallions are playing a role in the big day.

Horses from the Met police’s Mount Branch stable in West Hampstead and Hammersmith will escort the Royal Carriage procession carrying Prince William and his new wife Kate Middleton from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace.

Among them is 14 year-old silver-maned Fulham, from the West Hampstead stable, who has been in the Met since 2002.

He will be joined by his stable mate Gladstone who is also 14.
