We cannot deny that we were stunned here at Naijauto.com by these photos showing Queen Elizabeth of England who is currently 92-year-old and yet still driving herself around anytime she gets the chance. It’s just amazing.
Many people don’t know that the Queen is actually entitled to some driving privileges in the United Kingdom. Some of these privileges include; being allowed by law to drive a car around without a license or even plate number especially in her Bentley State Limousine as well as even travel overseas anywhere she wants to go without a passport for clearance. That’s what comes with such renowned royalty 😊.

Some of you guys would by now be wishing you were related to the Queen, right? You wish!
Actually, those privileges are not just a way of bending or breaking the law for the Queen’s favor, No!
The reason she is entitled to those privileges is because all UK’s travelling passports, plate number, and driver’s license are issued in the Queen’s name with her seal, so it makes no sense for the Queen herself to own one. Now you get it, huh?
Normally, we all know that aged people avoid driving and they aren’t even permitted to do so in some countries but, this makes it surprising when you see a 92-years old Queen Elizabeth being spotted countless times driving herself around perfectly.

It’s quite astonishing to see this beautiful, confident and energetic Queen willing and still able to drive herself around in her numerous private cars which of course the royal garage is packed with hundreds of them.
Although, make no mistake, the Queen is still always driven by a royal chauffeur when riding in her Bentley State Limousine that worth ₦4.6 billion.
Royalty, Royalty, Royalty, huh?
Yes, she is definitely the most popular if not the only royal figure that has recognition all over the world.

She was an 18-year old princess back in the times of the World War II but she was indeed really useful for to her nation despite knowing that she was from the great England royal family. Back then, she would drive ambulances and military trucks as well as help rebuild engines and change vehicle tires.
Even King Abdullah who was once former Saudi Arabia’s Crown prince had been on a ride with the Queen as the driver some years ago but he was nervous all through because women aren’t allowed to drive in his country.
As a matter of fact, Sherard Cowper-Coles, the former British ambassador to Saudi Arabia in his memoir titled “Ever the Diplomat” revealed that:
“[King Abdullah’s] nervousness only increased as the Queen, an Army driver in wartime, accelerated the Land Rover along the narrow Scottish estate roads, talking all the time. Through his interpreter, the Crown Prince implored the Queen to slow down and concentrate on the road ahead.”
