My favorite moment of the day!
To top off their morning of matrimony, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hopped into a stunning Seychelles blue convertible Aston Martin DB6 for a quick, regal and unprecedented spin around the ceremonial approach route of Buckingham Palace, much to the rapturous surprise of the lingering assemblage of well-wishers. Isn’t that just grand! Such a fun moment.
The royal wheels – owned by Prince William’s father, The Prince of Wales – runs on the sustainable fuel E85 bioethanol, made from English wine wastage. The eco-friendly auto boasted a trail of decorations, balloons and a license plate bearing the legend JU5T WED. Very Cool!
Many have speculated that the bright red L plate on the grill of the James Bond-style vehicle signified that the Prince was still a rookie behind the wheel. But fret not, motorists! It’s probably just a royal inside jape, as Prince William successfully passed his drivers’ test back in 1999. The red L stands for Learners , much as we have a Learners Permit. I don’t think he really has a learners permit.
