Matching it with Prince Charles’s Aston Martin!
After they have kids, most people opt for a family-friendly car: an SUV, station wagon, perhaps a minivan. But Princess Diana didn’t change cars. Instead, she changed a car.
Diana’s 1983 Jaguar was originally intended to be a two-seater vehicle. But with two small children, the princess needed some additional room—so Jaguar just rebuilt it for her. “While the other 5,012 cabriolets produced in Coventry between 1983 and 1988 were all two-seaters, this stately XJ-SC (registered E763 KYX) was uniquely fitted with two small rear seats so the young Princes William and Harrycould ride along with their mother and her bodyguard,” The Telegraph reports.
She also had some fun with the design: Her seats were upholstered with personalized leather and Harris Tweed, and the exterior was painted green to match Prince Charles’s Aston Martin.
