Good God. What a touch of class. What a show of Old World spirit. Nellie, you can't imagine any royal having the same idea today -- largely because they wouldn't think it a courtesy to do so, because why should meeting a Queen or King matter? I wish I had been born 100 years ago.

P.S.: I knew you had something of that lorry accident! =D> You know, thinking about it, it's kind of creepy that a 70-something woman survived a horrible car accident, largely unscathed except for a few bruised ribs and an eyesore, whereas a 30-something woman like Princess Diana died on scene.

I did not think the accident was as severe as your story - simply that the car was tipped on its side.

Anyway, it would not be travelling at a very high speed. Sedate I would think.

Sorry to interrupt your story about QMary's accident, which is very interesting indeed, but I need to post our Lilibet here, driving by herself in 1957 a car that I can't recognize which model it is.
Notice the speedish face of Charles >:)

Imagen

Don't forget that Lilibet is used to driving miniature cars since childhood.

You could be right, Nellie. I read it in a biography of the period, of Queen Mary. It's got one of those ugly pink covers which stands out, so common at the time, but I couldn't find it just now when I had a look-see in my library. Bios of that period often exaggerated stuff to put their subjects in a better light.

It had that photo of the Queen in the humble dining room of a Londoner. Her face has a look of shock mixed with relief -- as can be imagined. I would even go so far as to say her eyes look moist, as if she'd had a cry (probably the shards of glasses). Her diary entries the next few days made frequent mentions of being achy and a bit shell-shocked. From memory, I think she did use the words in her diary, "I could've been killed" or similar.

Citar:

If you can factor in her age, the fact that she had to be pulled out of the wreckage with glass flying all about her, with the car on one side on the road, and everyone on the street peering in to see the FAMOUS Queen Mary in obvious distress, well, it beggars the mind. Just imagine the Queen today, in a similar incident.

P.S.: Hehe, Sabba. Great photos! That's the dread Marion Crawford, the betrayer of trust, "Crawfie" next to the Princesses...

Here's one of Carlos, as I'm forced to call him on Dinastías, now. :-D

You know, I think his mum had the better toy car!

What, pray, is Prince Charles holding between his little banana fingers in that picture? Is he strangling a white fluffy cat?

I have in my treasure chest a "nicer" image of the little prince in his car (from 1953, says the card):

Imagen

The car, before you all go out running to find out, is a model Sunbeam Talbot coupé from 1952 (a British carmaker of the time), of which the Royal Collection offers this photo:

It seems that el príncipe Carlos took to driving! Here in his teens, driving a "girlfriend" home (Corbis).

Great set of pics, Octavius, and colour ones too.

I don't know what Princess Michael would have thought of this one.

Prince Michael in a Mini. :shock: He's certainly come on in the world.

Octavius! You jolly joker, you. And yes, I do believe Principe Carlos is strangling a fluffy white cat. They say all serial killers start "small" like that. Not that I'm implying my future King is a serial killer, you understand!! OR AM I.

The King of Spain inside a Maybach, which is just a souped up Merc, at what appears to be a car show.

Imagen

His ex-flame, Princess Maria-Gabriella of Savoy, just about to get inside of her Alfa-Romeo. GREAT CHOICE of vehicle. I hope it was red.

Imagen


Oops. Wrong thread.

Imagen


The King with all those tattoos, Frederik IX.

Imagen


Rare photo of Prince Joachim of Prussia behind the wheel, during WWI.

Imagen


Princess Ileana of Romania again, this time behind the wheel of a convertible outside of [correction] America's naval academy, Annapolis. Later that tour alongside her mother, she was racing to keep up with the speed demon that was Prince Nicolas, and she actually had a fender-bender in Colorado. It made the papers.

This is just awful. Poor Queen Ena...

...OOPS again. I'm really losing the plot with all these languages!

They called Tsar Ferdinand of Bulgaria "Foxy", but it sure wasn't for his looks. During the Great War.

And fine, I'll stop now, but just one more. BEE & MISHA. Courtesy of Minnie.
