The Royal Arrival Celebrated at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort

Guests visiting the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort on Saturday 2nd May got a unique surprise. Not the characters from Star Wars patrolling every corner of the park, but the Model Makers had been quick off the mark to add a new arrival to Buckingham Palace in Miniland. 

The stork on top of Buckingham Palace was carrying Princess Charlotte, and was a fun touch as guests walked past and spotted it. Model Makers had clearly wasted no time putting the extra model together that combined a sense of occasion with some typical LEGO whimsy.

There were only a few days to spot this unique addition, as the Model Makers worked quickly again to really welcome Princess Charlotte to Miniland…

Just three days after the much-anticipated arrival of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort has welcomed the new Royal baby – in miniature – into the LEGO® Royal family at its world famous Miniland attraction.
The Resort’s talented Model Making team have created a minute 7cm tall double buggy for the tiny LEGO Royal baby created from just 3 bricks, and her big brother, Prince George a toddler sized 24 brick mini-lander. The new Royal in her mini carriage has taken up pride of place alongside LEGO versions of the traditional birth announcement sign and the wider Royal family in a celebratory scene at the staggeringly accurate 35,000 brick Buckingham Palace.
“Our guests have a real soft spot for the Miniland Royal Family, so we didn’t think twice about celebrating the birth of Princess Charlotte by adding her into our hugely popular Royal scene," commented Divisional Director of the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, Sue Kemp. "Updating our Royal family has become something of a tradition here at LEGOLAND Windsor, and we’ve had a lot of fun with them over the years – from recreating the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in miniature and commissioning tiny bespoke Royal Ascot hats for the Royal ladies, to throwing Prince George a teeny first birthday garden party last summer. We hope guests will enjoy our latest Royal addition as much as we do.”
Princess Charlotte is joined by immediate family, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George, as well as both sets of grandparents – the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, and Michael and Carole Middleton. Also in attendance are her great-grandparents, Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh – as well as the Queen’s beloved corgis.
Guests can see the new Royal baby as part of Miniland's recreation of Buckingham Palace now where it will remain in place until LEGOLAND closes for the season in November.
