Her Dad was a doctor, but I believe he now owns a BMW dealership, although I'm not sure if this was ever confirmed or just a rumour.

It's nice to know she drives herself, do you think her car is bullet proof? Are there any other royals cars that are bullet proof? I heard one of Prince Charles cars is bullet proof. Not sure about that though.

Also, the first car Prince William got (when he learned to drive) was bulletproofed and it resisted bombs, I think he still has it

Princess Anne's Bentley was a birthday gift from the State I believe. She insists on driving herself. When she was younger, she would swear quite fiercely at other drivers and the Lady-in-Waiting assigned to her sat there wincing as she came out with some very choice phrases. When she uttered the 'C' word, the Lady-in-Waiting turned off the radio and said, "Now you listen to me. Say that once more and I'll tell your mother". After that Anne never swore again in the Lady-in-Waiting's prescence and her road rage cooled off. Very brave of the Lady-in-Waiting!

Wouldn't he also have a inheritance from his family in Greece? I'm sure being the King of Greece at one time would have brought in a substanial inheritance plus the tax payers money?
