Wrote this post about a year three and a half years ago, and running it here because now it’s time for I just recalled another annoying display of royal indifference:

And believe it or not, it’s not in a Rolls.

My interest in the Royal Wedding Diamond Jubilee is limited, so of course I wanted a car or cooking angle. Elizabeth II rides around in a heavily-modified Bentley, the donor chassis probably related to a Bentley Arnage. HRH likes a royal purple exterior and cloth seats, so that’s what the car has. Note also the high roofline and large windows – the Queen is an expensive indulgence, so the Brits should be able to see her as she passes by. More on the car here.
