Wooden model kit manufacturer UGears is making Royal Wedding preparations with the launch of its build-your-own Royal Carriage model.
Made from FSC-certified sustainably sourced wood, the model features the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as Queen Elizabeth and The Duke of Edingburgh.
The launch of the building kit has been inspired by the royals’ own commitment to sustainability, having taken steps to ensure all flowers used at the wedding and locally and sustainably sourced.
Prince Harry and Meghan have also asked people to donate to the charity Crisis instead of wedding gifts, a cause and charity that is “close to the UGears’ teams hearts.”
The four-horse drawn carriage model is inspired by the 1902 State Landau, features a hidden motor and retails for £39.99.
UGears models are created from a sustainable wood source and the kits are laser etched in house. No glue or special tools are needed to put the kit together.
Daria Dubets, company director of UGears, said: “The commitment from the royal couple to sustainability and charity at their wedding is incredibly inspiring. At UGears, we have worked hard to ensure our company uses only sustainably sourced FSC-certified wood and we are pleased to be able to offer a royal wedding memento which reflects the couple’s wishes and goals.
“What could be a more fitting tribute to the royal couple than this one of a kind homage to their special day. We have spent a lot of time designing the Royal Carriage model to bring joy into homes across the country as families spend time together building their very own royal carriage.”
