Blog Real, Thank you for all the fun photos! It is nice to see many royal ladies behind the steering wheels.

I wasn't sure where to put this so mods please move if it's in the wrong place.

It's strikes me as wonderfully dotty but anyway.

I just completed 1 of 2 series, "The Secrets of Royal Travel" offered by PBS/ Public Broadcast Station in the US. The first video highlights the history of the British Royal Train used by the British Monarchy going back to Queen Victoria until now. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

The second video is The Secret of Royal Flight. https://video.wkar.org/video/episode...flight-0hh9fb/

It looks really posh to have a royal train although the UK no longer has a royal yacht as still do Denmark and Norway.

I had the thought the royal train was older but the article above stated the current one only came into use in 1977 to mark the Silver Jubilee.

It's my impression "the royal train" has been around since Queen Victoria. I think over the past 150 years or so there have been several iterations of the royal train. It's been fascinating to learn more about the train. I especially learned quite a bit from the documentary "The Secrets of the Royal Train" as well, thank you to Irish Royalist for the Daily Mail articles.

Queen Elizabeth has a new burgundy coloured Range Rover (new model, only just released), which she used yesterday when driven to the royal Windsor Horse show gala event for the Platinum Jubilee.

Do the Belgians have any state/vintage cars at their disposal?

I do not think I have seen them in one. The King and Queen tend to usually be seen in Mercedes S-Class cars.
