I know that Queen Elizabeth II drives her Vauxhall and her Land Rover, both of which she has had for some time. I believe that Prince Bernhard, father of Queen Beatrix, drives a Porsche (as did the late Prince Bertil of Sweden). The Prince of Wales drives a Jaguar, a convertible one if I am correct. That's all I can remember! ;)

HM's Rolls Royce & Bentley vehicles all run on Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). They were converted from petrol some years ago.

You´re right, why else....
here´s a better pic of the new limo of Queen Beatrix..It´s not so special as i thought it would be. The previous one had a higher roof, but that one was really ugly.

Sara,
Prince Charles drives an Aston Martin & has done for many years. Prince Andrew is a Jaguar man (great taste).

Diana's Cars
 
Diana drove a lot of Fords, even after marriage. Rather interesting-one had a frog (frog who married Prince from Charles on front). They were:

1. Mom's Renault (learned to drive in it)
2. Honda Civic (gift from mom)
3. Pale Blue VW Turbo (dented by another woman coming out of store.
4. Red Mini Metro; purchased by an English man for
3700.00
5. Siver grey Ford Escort 1.6 Ghia, reg. #WEV 297W, driven until after birth of William and sold for 2,875.
6. Black Ford Escort, reg. #BJN 17X, leased from Ford until Sept. 1983.
7. Ford Escort Cabriolet
8. Black Ford Escort Turbo (10,432 cost)
9. 28,000 Jaguar (leased for few days)
10. Ford Sierra Sapphire Cosworth
11. Green Jaguar XJS

In 1/1992, she leased using her personal funds, a 172,310 metallic red, soft top Mercedes Benz 500 SL.
She was criticized for it; I've heard two conclusions: 1. She returned it; 2. She kept it. I honestly don't know.

Hope this is interesting and informative. Mary Shawn
Sporty Escort Turbo black (1989)
Blue VW Polo (crashed by another woman coming out of store

Someone in a previous post said that Queen Elizabeth II drives a Jaguar. To be more exact, it's a Daimler Double Six saloon, which she bought in 1994.
Here is a picture of her car (painted in Edinburgh green).
