I've seen Prince Felipe driving a Lexus SUV, an navy blue or black Audi, and grey a Bmw and Letizia a Bmw X5.

Anyone knows if those cars are like in their house, so they can use them whenver they want?.

I'm not sure what their current car is but the Earl and Countess of Wessex seem to like Rovers.

Prince Andrew driving Princess Beatrice

I've never posted a picture here before, not sure if this is correct. The picture is from Hello Magazine.

I know this is a real real long shot, but continueing on from this message in 2004, I am currently trying to research diana's cars (espcially her Ford Escorts) that she owned. You put on here that she had 4 or 5, I only knew of 2, have you any pictures of these cars that you could post, I would be eternally grateful, especially BJN 17X.

Kind regards

I guess its a sign of the times that neither Wills nor Harry drive flashy or conspicous sports cars. Wills drives an Audi S4 (which is a very fast A4), and Harry drives an Audi A3. This is quite unlike the previous generation of British royals or other European royals of Wills and Harry's generation. If I am not mistaken, Charles received an Aston DB5 from his parents on his 21st birthday (he still has the car and uses it occassionally around Highgrove in the summer months), and we have a relatively recent picture above of Andrew is an Aston Martin DB7. Even parsimonous Anne had a sporty little convertible in her younger days.

Is it that the lefties have scared the boys into not driving anything flash, or is it that the boys are not into fast cars (quite hard to believe!!)? Come on guys, get something interesting. Wills in an Aston V8 or an Audi R8 would be great!

I think Sophie used Rovers when she was still working and Rover was a client of hers. They tend to be seen in a Range Rover these days

royal land rovers and range rovers

Hi
I am especially interested in Royal vehicles as i own and am currently restoring a Land Rover that was used on board Britannia in the fifties and sixties. it used to be carried in a special garage and winched up onto the deck by crane. it carried the reg number TGF640 though this was used in 1963 on another and is still i believe in use on a Royal vehicle and would love to see any photos of it or any other Land Rovers (or range Rovers) in use by the Royal Family. i am also trying to track down a Range Rover used by Prince Charles from about 1990 onwards and it was green with a G...WAC registration. i have been told that the one that he and Camilla were photographed in by a freelance photographer in 1990 had a similar number so can anyone point me in the direction of a copy or link to this famous photograph as i can not find it anywhere.
thanks in anticipation
soggy

These sites might be able to help you.

LandyZone - Land Rover Forum
Land Rover UK Forums
LR4x4 - The Land Rover Forum (Powered by Invision Power Board)

There are also a variety of sites that allow you to trace the history of many Land Rovers.

Expensive and sometimes frustrating business restoring an old Land Rover, especially if you don't want to compromise the Royal connection.

Yes, I remember hearing when Prince William of Britain got his license he was instructed in defensive driving.
