She looks a lot like her mother in this pic. She hardly can watch what's going on on the street Don't think she drives on the motorways.

Queen Rania and King Abdullah have often been photographed driving themselves. Queen Rania in particular has been seen driving herself to official functions.

Does anybody know very much about the cars used by the British Royal Family? I know the PoW household has a collection of Audi A6 estates and Charles has an Audi A8 and a Jag, and privately he also owns an old Aston DB5. What about the rest of the family? Is there a thread where this is covered?

The British Royal Family always had British cars - Jaguars, Bentleys, Landrovers / Range Rovers etc .. Princess Diana caused controversy when she started driving an Audi Convertible but since then the rules seem to have slackened somewhat ... Wills had a Volkswagen Golf & now drives an Audi, Harry had an Audi A3 - not sure what he drives now. Prince Charles usually in Jaguars & has vinatge Aston Martins & the Queen has a special custom built Bentley & around Windsor at Polo she's often seen driving herself in a Jaguar. Usually when Harry / Wills chauffeured it's Range Rovers & the Royal Protection Squad usually always in Range Rovers ... Around Windsor / Balmoral they have a huge fleet of Landrovers / Discoveries / Range Rovers & are often seen driving them - especially Prince Phillip ... & of course Zara P is sponsored by Landrover so got given a free Range Rover Sport & Landrover.

Forgot to say - The Queen doesn't drive on public roads ... only around her estates - In Windsor she can go for miles & miles without leaving her land, likewise in Balmoral ... When Wills & Harry out driving though, they're never alone - always Range Rovers on their tale obviously security is paramount - you often see them around Park Lane area / Brompton Rd

Thanks very much. I also think the rules re royals and Bristh cars have slackened because there aren´t that many cars made in the UK by "British" manufacturers any more.I thinkthe largest manufacturer of cars in the UK now is Honda.

I've seen Prince Felipe driving a Lexus SUV, an navy blue or black Audi, and grey a Bmw and Letizia a Bmw X5.

Anyone knows if those cars are like in their house, so they can use them whenver they want?.

I'm not sure what their current car is but the Earl and Countess of Wessex seem to like Rovers.

Prince Andrew driving Princess Beatrice

I've never posted a picture here before, not sure if this is correct. The picture is from Hello Magazine.

I know this is a real real long shot, but continueing on from this message in 2004, I am currently trying to research diana's cars (espcially her Ford Escorts) that she owned. You put on here that she had 4 or 5, I only knew of 2, have you any pictures of these cars that you could post, I would be eternally grateful, especially BJN 17X.

Kind regards

Sharon

I guess its a sign of the times that neither Wills nor Harry drive flashy or conspicous sports cars. Wills drives an Audi S4 (which is a very fast A4), and Harry drives an Audi A3. This is quite unlike the previous generation of British royals or other European royals of Wills and Harry's generation. If I am not mistaken, Charles received an Aston DB5 from his parents on his 21st birthday (he still has the car and uses it occassionally around Highgrove in the summer months), and we have a relatively recent picture above of Andrew is an Aston Martin DB7. Even parsimonous Anne had a sporty little convertible in her younger days.

Is it that the lefties have scared the boys into not driving anything flash, or is it that the boys are not into fast cars (quite hard to believe!!)? Come on guys, get something interesting. Wills in an Aston V8 or an Audi R8 would be great!

I think Sophie used Rovers when she was still working and Rover was a client of hers. They tend to be seen in a Range Rover these days
