WINDSOR – A new model has gone on display at Legoland Windsor as people in the United Kingdom and beyond prepare to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The piece, which depicts the real-life royal wedding that will take place on Saturday, features a model of Windsor Castle, as well as figurines of Harry and his fiancee being pulled along in a horse-drawn carriage.
The castle is made up of 39,960 bricks and would be on display permanently, its makers said.
