The Queen was often spotted driving her Range Rover Autobiography model. On this occasion, she was accompanied by her lady-in-waiting, Dame Annabel Whitehead, at a horse show in 2021.
2. Jaguar X-Type Station Wagon
The Queen was a big fan of British cars and practical at that; according to AutoEvolution, while her favourite car was the Defender, she had a backup whip: the Jaguar. It's another British carmaker, and a petrol or diesel engine powers the X-Type.
3. Bentley State Limousine
The Royal Family has a long history with Bentley; this long-wheelbase version was gifted to her as a Golden Jubilee gift. According to SlashGear, it's worth around $11 million and has been modified with high-strength bombproof panels to withstand terrorist attacks.
4. Vauxhall Cresta PA Friary Estate
According to the Telegraph, the Queen powered around in a 2.2-litre Vauxhall station wagon.
It was fitted with a partitioning at the rear for the Queen's corgis, a place to keep fishing rods on the roof, and a gun holder in case she decided to hunt pheasants.
