While everyone feasted their eyes on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s love story, here we are being awed by the 1950 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV, which took the new Duchess of Sussex for a ride at the Royal Wedding.
I mean, who wouldn’t be amazed? It’s actually one of the 18 cars that Rolls-Royce created from 1950 to 1956. And sorry to say that if you’re not part of the royal family or any other heads of state, you wouldn’t be able to experience riding this vintage car.
The 1950 Phantom IV was also the same car owned by Queen Elizabeth when she was still a princess. Surprisingly, it still runs just fine given that this exclusive vehicle is six decades old.
Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were chauffeured by the Queen’s 2002 Bentley State Limousine, which is equipped with a biofuel engine. Aside from that, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, arrived with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. They were driven by a Daimler DS 420s, which has been serving the royalties for about 26 years.
If the mentioned vintage cars made you feel jealous, well, there’s more. Harry and Meghan proceeded to the evening reception driving a stylish silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero car. It’s the electric version of the 1969 British classic. The modern Jaguar’s license plate bears the Duke and Duchess’ wedding date. Sweet.
