So if you're anything like us, you've had it up to here (imaginary line drawn just above testicles) with all the hoopla surrounding the Royal wedding today. The one bright shining part of the whole
ordeal celebration is the occasional glimpse of Britain's finest motorcars in one form or another. From Prince Charles' own 1969 Aston Martin DB6 (a 21st birthday gift from his mother) to the Queen's own specially made, one-off Bentley limousine and every other Royal transport in between, ranging from Range Rovers and rolling on to Rolls-Royces. Interestingly, the "L" plate on the front of the Aston indicates the driver is on a "Learner's permit", which in this case was a practical joke played on William by a friend or relative.
