There will be no horse-drawn carriage to whisk Kate Middleton into the royal family.

The 28-year-old, who plans to marry Prince William on April 29, will break from tradition and arrive at Westminster Abbey by car for her big day.

The prince’s late mother, Princess Diana, famously made a dramatic entrance in a glass carriage to her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981.

The newlyweds will, however, hitch a carriage ride for a parade to Buckingham Palace after the ceremony.

Queen Elizabeth II will hold a reception to celebrate the couple before guests head to a dinner and dance in the evening hosted by Prince Charles.

The couple is turning their noses up at other royal traditions, too. There will be no wedding breakfast for family, and Queen Elizabeth won’t be throwing a gala leading up to the nuptials.

The pair will be married by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams.
