A film-maker has created a version of the Royal wedding starring plastic dolls from the Early Learning Centre.

In the two-minute animation, miniature figures from the Happyland range depict the roles of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Queen and adoring crowds during the ceremony on 29 April.

The bride and groom, both 7cm tall, are driven down in a crowd-lined Mall in a gilt-edged horse-drawn carriage guarded by soldiers. Prince William and Kate Middleton then arrive at Westminster Abbey and marry in front of a small, clapping congregation. The prince wears a black military uniform and his commoner bride a white wedding dress.

They exchange a kiss on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, which appears to be made out of white card.

Scrolling under the footage - made by Jean-Paul Pirie of Deadly Media - are a stream of messages such as: “The Queen is said to be very happy with everything” and “President Obama sends his wishes to the happy couple”.
