Queen Drives Home From Church

We have many special customers turn up to get the best car servicing Uxbridge has to offer, but we have yet to welcome her majesty.

The Queen has gone viral online as photographs of her driving home after church in her Jaguar were published.

It has long been known that the Queen enjoys driving and often does so at Sandringham and Balmoral. The pictures published this week were taken when she drive down the Long Walk in Windsor Great Park.

She is the only person (other than park rangers) permitted to travel down this stretch between the castle and Royal Chapel of All Saints.

She learnt to drive while serving as a mechanic in the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service during World War Two, after she registered at the age of 16 (which she turned up to do in her Girl Guides uniform). It took many months of convincing her father to allow her to join, but once she did she completed the training required of a mechanic when she was eventually allowed to join at the age of 18.

This saw her learn to change a wheel, take apart and put back together engines, as well as drive different types of vehicles such as trucks and ambulances.

The Queen is now the only female member of the Royal Family to have served in the forces, and the only surviving head of state to have served in World War Two.

You can see the pictures of the Queen driving home after church in the Metro.
