Is that Nick Mason?

(On the left :) )
Yes and no doubt his garage and collection or a workshop at Goodwood.

But who was doing the training.


Pictures and videos show her dressed in a boiler suit working on a car engine, pulling out spark plugs and in her smart ATS uniform as she drove a truck.

Princess Elizabeth learned to tear apart, repair and build engines and additionally learned to drive a number of different military vehicles, including trucks and ambulances.

If you came of age in the 60's then being right cheeky was SOP. Now that those of us who did are a wee bit older I can tell you I flush with embarrassment knowing what a prat I was. Dumping on the dead queen is over the top and getting ready to slag Charles is nearly so. We all have feet of clay just that his are far more public than ours. Respect him for the job he now has and have a little self awareness. Imagine a youtube vid on your life. Think of the line at church "from whom no secrets are hid". Well that should do it!
The western world has far bigger problems than worry about the monarchy.

I guess proofreading is a lost art.
Queen gone!


My sincere condolences to all the grieving. By my observations, and all accounts, a caring, kind soul.
Godspeed.

Respect is earned...
I'm afraid (no, actually I'm not) that in his good few years on the planet his credit ran out years ago.
My opinion only of course, but I do respect the fact that others may vary.....

750,000 people coming to pay their respects to Her Majesty. Most of them in tears, as is the rest of the world. IMO every monarch, premiere, president and emperor on this planet should be in London on Monday and be on bended knee before this magnificent woman.

No. The hearse is a Jaguar designed by the Queen herself.
I bet that won't have a Chevy V8 . My mum passed away a couple of years ago at 93 ½ she was from Salisbury Wiltshire, and would always watch a bit of the royals .

Surprised at the row over whether Andrew and Harry could/should wear their uniforms. They served their country honorably. The rest is irrelevant.

No surprise; its called maintaining a standard. Protocol requires Harry to be put in his place; after he he and "Meeges" were the ones to piss on the institution but want all the benefits when it suits them. Maybe its the American way, but the reality is the monarchy has responsibilities that , obviously, don't translate too well in Americanese ?

Especially the Late Queens, rumour has it there was an SAS man lurking inside there ready to defend the lady.
