Prince William's first car was a VW Golf, wasn't it? And I think Harry was given the same car when he first started driving. I wonder if Char and Andy drive 5-speeds or automatics.

Charlotte is a really beautiful girl and I really think that one day she will be so beautiful and graceful just like her mother and grandmother despite they all have different kinds of beauty

I'm quite sure they drive 5-speeds. Automatic cars are very rare in france and europe in general. And I'm not sure you can even buy an automatic VW golf around here.

You are right. I see Eugenie now in those pics Carl posted. Val is there, and Marie-Christine Maillot too, and someone else whose name I don't know.
I'm not sure they were getting in the Rav4, though. It seems to me they may have walked past it only, and actually got into a white car of a completely different type? Correct me if I'm mistaken, of course.
Anyway, here are some of the pics I've cropped from Tbhrc's ebay finds.... these are some of the small ones that didn't crop into the greatest pics. If anyone can improve them, that would be awesome

Automatic cars cost more plus they take up more gas. And gas in europe is more expensive than it is in the US for example. That is what I heard, there are probably more reasons why they are rare in europe

I'm not sure that is the real reason. I mean, I am not an expert and although it is true that petrol is more expensive here than in the US, I believe that the main reason is only a question of different tastes.
I have never driven an automatic and I don't think I will never buy one. 5-gears cars give you the impression that you are really in control of the car and the driving seems more real. I know this may seem stupid since automatics are more confortable to drive, but I LOVE having to change gears, it gives me kind of power and control.
I know it sounds a bit ridicoulous but as stupid as it sounds I really believe that this silly psicological reason are the main reason why we don't buy many automatic cars.
They are some differences between countries, though, and in the U.K. you can see more automatic cars than in continental europe, but I still could not explain why

Yes the girl IS Tatiana. I have about 5 pictures from that day on my website but I don't know where exactly you will have to look. Try 2002, Misc 2002 or the Misc section. There are on there somewhere.

Whoops, my bad!
I have not uploaded this album yet. I have checked and the photos were from another day that I was thinking about. She was dressed similar.
Sorry for disappointing everyone :(
