All weekend, people have been buzzing about the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. While many people were fawning over the formal clothing, we had our eyes on the wheels at the occasion, namely the Jaguar E-Type Zero.
This electric sports car variant was used to transport the newlywed couple from Windsor Castle to the reception at nearby Frogmore House. Not available to the public, the concept was built from a donor E-Type. It pushes out 295 horsepower, powered by a 40-kilowatt-hour battery.
That wasn't the only impressive vehicle on the lot, however. We saw a 1950 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV State Car, which delivered Markle to the chapel. There was also a Bentley Mulsanne chauffering Daria Markle, the bride's mother, to the event. Queen Elizabeth herself, along with Prince Philip, came in on a Bentley Golden Jubilee. Not to mention the many Range Rovers full of British secret service, royal guards, and other police-like roles.
Meghan, now known as the Duchess of Sussex, will be given permanent security detail. While this does mean personal drivers, she won't be given up driving entirely. The Duchess will be given special training on how to avoid potential attackers on the road. This includes learning how to perform high-speed J turns (the thing when they drive backward quickly and spin around to be forward).
