For Prince Harry, Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding, Sweet Tribute From Lego

With just over a week to go before Britain's Prince Harry marries American actor Meghan Markle, you could say excitement ahead of the Royal wedding has reached fever pitch. On Wednesday, the amusement park Legoland Windsor Resort, in east of London, unveiled its take on the Royal wedding scene complete with a Lego Windsor Castle made entirely of Lego blocks. Nearly 60,000 Lego blocks, that is. The miniature model - which features Prince Harry and his bride-to-be Meghan Markle dressed in their wedding finery - was built by a team of 11 model-makers over 750 hours.

The wedding scene replica stars the happy couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but also includes miniature models of Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh along with best man (and elder brother) Prince William, his wife Kate Middleton and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte. We couldn't help but notice the absence of a certain Royal baby: Prince Louis, who was born on April 23.

Lego revealed that the whole scene took 11 people 752 hours to build and is made up of almost 60,000 Lego blocks.

One photo even shows Prince Harry and Meghan Markle riding in a carriage drawn by horses.

"An intricately designed mini Ascot Landau carriage, made from 1,500 LEGO bricks can also be spotted travelling down the miniature Long Walk (complete with two mini 200 LEGO brick horses), perfectly recreating the real life procession in miniature LEGO form," says the company.

The real life procession, of course, will take place on May 19. The two will marry at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
