10 Royal Cars You’ve Got to See
Rolls Royces and Bentleys are just some of the cars the Royal Family owns.
The Royal Family has an affinity for Audis and Prince Harry drove around in last December with Meghan to the Royal Family Christmas Lunch. He also listed an Audi RS6 for $94,000 earlier that year in August. Often the Royal Family has lease arrangements with car companies. The one that was listed was gray and had about $14,000 in options. Harry previously owned a RS5 and a S3. Prince Charles has owned an A8 while Prince William has owned an A5 Sportback and Kate has owned an A3.

The Bentley State Limousine was created in 2002 for her Golden Jubilee and only two of them were built. It has a 6.75-liter V8 engine that can reach 130 mph. The car is said to be valued at $12.7 million.
Her car collection also includes a Range Rover, a Land Rover, a Jaguar Daimler and a Bentley Bentayga.
Think you’re a classic car expert? Can you guess these vintage cars?
Prince Charles enjoys his Aston Martins. He received one for his 21st birthday and in this 1998 picture he drove one with Prince Harry and Tiggy Legge Bourke. He also received a 1989 V8 Vantage Aston Martin.
Older cars still capture our imaginations, just like these classic cars that make us yearn for designs of yesteryear.
Aston Martin Volante DB6
Prince Charles received this Aston Martin Volante DB6 as a gift for his 21st birthday and continues to routinely drive it. He drove it to a Country Churches concert at The Church of St. Mary the Virgin back in 2015. The car also carried Prince William and Kate when they got married.
Prince Charles had it converted to run on biofuel back in 2008, specifically it can run on wine waste and whey.
Would you switch to an electric car? Here’s what you’ve got to do to keep an electric car in good shape during the winter.
Prince Charles bought Jaguar’s first electric car in 2018. The car came with a price tag of $69,500 but other models cost as much as $80,000. The Jaguar has a range of 240 miles on its battery and has 394 horsepower.
Prince Harry and Meghan might have sold Prince Charles on electric vehicles after they drove around in an E-type Jaguar following their wedding in August 2018. They drove a concept car that was originally manufactured in 1968. Jaguar said any XK engine built from 1948 to 1992 can be converted to electric power as well. Jaguar expects conversions to take off in full force in 2020.
The Jaguar is a brand that has stood the test of time, as have these cars.
Prince Charles once owned an Audi A6 and it’s believed that the Royal Family has received up to a 60 percent discount (like they need it) from Audi on the lease agreement. In addition to beautiful cars, the Royals have some beautiful residences.
Prince William was spotted driving around in this BMW back in 2012 when he and Kate attended the wedding of their friends Alice St. John Webster and Gerald Avenel. Find out what Prince William and the other royals like to do when they’re not making appearances.
Since Prince William and Kate had children, his preferred ride has been a Range Rover it seems. Here, he and Kate make their way to the Royal Christmas lunch back in 2017. The Range Rover is a classic car option but these five cars are considered the biggest flops.
1977 Rolls Royce Phantom VI
Prince Charles and Camilla rode around in the classic 1977 Rolls Royce Phantom VI in June 2019 when President Trump visited. The Rolls Royce has been used for a number of special occasions, like when Kate married Prince William. Kate and her father rode in the vehicle to the wedding. The car was a gift from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders for the Queen’s 25th year of reign. It needed repair in 2011 when students threw paint bombs at it. When the model debuted in 1968, it was considered the world’s most expensive car.
