I saw an "in the flesh" Cayenne last week. I want one. In my younger years, I had a boyfriend who had a Lamborghini Espada. After the first time, I wouldn't ride in it as you kind of had to stand on your head to get out of the car!!!

Thanks for the nice photos. They are handsome people.

Kitty, the Cayenne is fairly common in the UK. I'm in Spain at the moment and I've just seen one parked outside a small two bedroom terraced house in a not very posh area. They're ubiquitous in Europe.

A lot of the members of the British Royal family drive Audi's (William and Catherine, Edward and Sophie for example.) Does Audi sponsor their usage or do they purchase the cars themselves? They seem to have new cars almost every year, which is what made me think they were sponsored but now I am not so sure.

Catherine still has her old Audi A3 which she uses. Typically in London she is seen in either a Range Rover or a Jaguar XJ or an Audi A8 from the Clarence House fleet.

Royals in traffic on the road

I just was wondring when the royals are on the road in traffic do they have all the streets blocks and stop for them? just wondering today i was stuck more than 2 hours because the president was passing through, i could not belive the police and security operation they closed all the freeways, streets, it was crazy, if you were on the west side of the freeway you couldn't go to the east side and viceverse, a police told me exit in the next street and wait there around 45 minutes to an hour until they open the streets again, it was a really nightmare all the cars, trafic,etc..... and very anoying.... it was a rush hour completely anoying
So I was thinking do the royals in Europe do the same? have the city stop for them everytime they step outside their castle?

Not in Scandinavia. Except on special and grand occasions in connection with their duties. - In those cases other prominent guests also get a police escort, which will ensure a clear passage.
And that is for security and practical reasons. - A car stopping at at a red light is vulnerable. But mainly it is to ensure a smooth running of an event. I.e. to ensure that guests and royals arrive on time and don't get stuck somewhere. (They will usually also get a police escort for the last couple of kilometres to an event, however. It would look a bit silly if the monarch's car is stopping for red light 100 meters away from the red carpet, with VIP's flowergirls, band and the whole show waiting.)
On a day to day basis, they get no priority.

In one of the TV portraits of queen Margrethe for her 40th jubilee, she even mentioned a visit to Thailand (I believe it was) when all traffic was stopped to let the royal entourage get through.
She came across as not being completely comfortable with that - and said something like it was probably good that something like that did not happen back in her own country.

When there is a planned visit by royals to a specific area in the UK certain areas are shut off. Prince Charles visited Wakefield and Barnsley this week and a friend of mine complained when travelling to university via train that the services had been postponed due to a 'possible' visit from the Prince. There are obviously safety precautions that lead to the shutting of roads. But in my experience it only happens for huge events.

I understand it make sense that the shutt of several streets for a big event like a wedding or the 40 jjubilee of the queen, and i expect a lot of people would like to go and look theevent, everybody knows .... but for everyday it isrediculus, thepresident will behere for 3 days so in this 3 daysall thetraffic will be crazy, mind you i knew today becasue of the tv news at what time he was going to pass so i took different route to take my daughter to school but took 20 minutes extra than normal, still annoying...........
i am glad ti listen the comment of queen Margrethe, she seems asensitive womn with the foot on earth!

All the roadblocks and other shutdowns are for security reasons. It would be a nightmare if a royal was in a traffic jam because security would have to watching everyone around. With a traffic shutdown, they have more control over the situation.

Another thing that I think no one mentions is that if people knew that Queen Elizabeth or Princess Charles or Prince Williams was going to be on such and such road at a certain time, there would be people trying to position themselves on the road to get a look at them or try to take pictures of them. A security nightmare or massive traffic jam could result. This also could cause an accident (someone not paying attention to their driving.).

Are there any photos of Princess Mathilde driving herself? There are quite a few of Queen Paola driving over the years, most recently in a white Fiat 500. I'm sure Mathilde drives also.

Okay, on the Mathilde and Philippe thread, there's a photo of Mathilde driving into Laeken Palace in her minivan on April 23rd, 2010. The photo is here:
