I think the Bentley we have seen the Queen in (visiting Downing Street for the Jubilee, visiting Philip in hospital and visiting the new Prince George of Cambridge) is a replaceyement for the Jaguar car the Queen used to use. As far as I know the old style jaguar was not replaced with the more modern one like those we see the Prince of Wales and the Cambridge's using.
The Queen has always had a more low-key, normal looking car she can use for private trips when the State cars would not be appropriate.
We have also seen the Prince of Wales in a similar Bentley on several occasions so maybe when the old jagaur cars needed replacing a few new Bentley's were ordered.
That right, the Bentley limousines are used for state occasions, while for private visits and less formal engagements, HM used the Bentley. She has had the Bentley for some time now, as has the PoW his.
The PoW's household has his Bentley, some Jaguar XJs (used by Charles, Camilla, William, Catherine and Harry), Audi A8s, some Audi A6 estates, and Range Rovers. This is in addition to the vehicles used privately, eg Catherine's A3, William's A5 and Charles' old Aston.
