Legoland uses 39,000 bricks to create Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding

The upcoming royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is going to be a truly larger-than-life affair — which is perhaps why Lego decided to make a much, much smaller-than-life version of it. 

Legoland Windsor has created its own version of the upcoming nuptials made entirely out of Legos, using a whopping 39,000 bricks in the process.

This is the first time the group has made a permanent structure for a royal event, and it took nearly 600 hours to create the exhibit — which features a replica of the Windsor Castle and mini Lego versions of many members of the royal family.

There were 11 model makers enlisted for the daunting task of creating a miniature version of the upcoming royal wedding for the Lego exhibit.

The creation features Lego versions of Prince Harry and Meghan dressed up for the big day, as well as mini versions of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Phillip, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte. 

Each royal member is so intricately detailed that people can make out the blue sash with medals across Prince William and Prince Phillip’s chests.

Included with the castle and the royal family is a tiny Ascot Landau carriage, which was made out of 1,500 bricks. 

Surrounding the elaborate castle and the royal family is a crowd of about 500 Lego people, who were made out of 17,00 bricks. 

In the crowd are the Spice Girls — two of whom said this week that they were not actually invited to the affair, despite rumors that the group would perform — as well as other well-wishers.

An array of Lego spectators are placed at a distance away from the castle gates as they vie for their own shot to view the royal couple.

These spectators are clothed in bright-colored bricks, and Lego Union Jack flags are seen hanging over their heads.

Other details in the scene include horses, palace guards, gates, photographers, and several long banquet tables. 

To celebrate the opening of the new exhibit at Legoland, the company staged a series of photos to illustrate the wedding between Lego Meghan and Lego Harry.

People who visit can see the two stand in front of the castle to get married before they are taken away in the royal carriage.

Other high-profile Lego people in attendance include Prince Charles, the Duke of Cornwall and his wife Camilla. Notably missing from the Lego crowd is Prince Louis, but he was probably home with his Lego nanny during the event. 

Legoland Windsor will keep the castle and its Lego crowd on display until November of this year for anyone that wants to witness the creation.
