10 million ponds? For a Bentley! Are you being serious??????
but I'm pleased the royals are going green. Biofuels from algae would be a good choice also.

I'm just guessing but I imagine that those two Bentleys are more than a little special and certainly not production models.

But it is wonderful that the whole family is going "Green", although I have to admit Charles vino fueled car is a bit of a worry!

Cowell spent $4,400 on an old photo of the Queen and Prince Philip to help out an animal shelter.

Nobody's picking up the algae biofuel, which is interesting. Are the Bentley's armoured plated? Thick glass windows? That might explain the cost.

In this case, I think it would be fair to assume that the Queen was:

A. Not amused. and

B. Not showing it, in her own inimitable style, to all those who turned out to share this wonderful annual tradition with her. Classy!

Quite possibly they were a little concerned that animal welfare supporters might turn up. There is always security at these events, sometimes you see it, some times you don't.
