She said: “We were on rationing then, so we weren’t allowed to sew on any embellishments, so the train was embroidered. There were four of us girls working on it and we earned 49 and a half hours overtime doing … [Read more...] about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle donate Royal Wedding flowers to hospice that cares for patients from Newham and Tower Hamlets

Saturday's royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wasn’t just about the dress, as there were an assortment of interesting British cars in service throughout the event. One of the standouts was the Jaguar E-Type Zero, an electric version of the iconic sports car that Harry and his new wife drove from Windsor Castle to the reception at nearby Frogmore House. The E-Type Zero isn't a car you can buy just yet. It's a concept built using a donor E-Type, which Jaguar unveiled last year to gauge interest in a potential commercial electric conversion for the sports car. It packs a 40-kilowatt-hour battery and 295-horsepower electric motor in the tight confines of the E-Type's sexy silhouette. The relatively high range is made possible because of the low weight of the car coupled with its slippery shape. Other cars on duty during the day included a 1950 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV State Car that Markle rode in to the chapel, a Bentley Mulsanne that Markle's mother Daria rode in, … [Read more...] about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leave wedding in an electric E-Type
PRINCE Harry drove his new bride Meghan Markle away in an iconic Jaguar E-Type, here's all the info on the British sports car. The car was built between 1961 and 1975 with Enzo Ferrari calling it "the most beautiful car ever made". What is the Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero? Prince Harry and Meghan Markle drove off in a 1968 silver blue E-Type although the Concept Zero version is an adapted version to make it electric, which Jaguar Land Rover converted last year. The couple used it to get to Frogmore House for the after-party. Prince William and Kate Middleton left Buckingham Palace after their wedding in 2011 in a vintage Aston Martin DB6.

What's the performance? It is still a high performance sports car, capable of doing 0-60mph in 5.5 seconds, one second faster than an original Series 1 version. The car the … [Read more...] about What is the Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle drove after the Royal Wedding?

Here’s how it all happened: July 2016: Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle meet on a blind date set up by a mutual female friend. Markle recalls in an interview with the BBC that “I didn’t know much about him, and so the only thing that I had asked her when she said that she wanted to set us up, was, I had one question.

MINI has released a one-off model to celebrate the Royal wedding - and it will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. The special edition Cooper S hatchback is set to become one of the more expensive pieces of memorabilia to commemorate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day. But the Royal couple won't get a chance to drive the unique motor, as it will be sold at The Children's HIV Association auction, with all proceeds going to charity. And while there isn't anything special about the actually workings of the car, its design wont be found on any other MINI. Painted classic white with iconic racing stripes, the Cooper S has a special blue and red decal covering the roof that is supposed to combine the Union Jack and flag of the USA. The car's indicators show the initials "M" and "H", while an LED light shines the words "Just Married" on the ground when you open the front doors. Fitted with the same turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine as the standard Cooper S, the hatchback … [Read more...] about MINI releases one-off special edition model to celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal wedding – and it could be yours

BRITS are hoping this will be the vehicle newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will drive off into the sunset in following their wedding. A recent survey asked Royal fans to vote on the type of car they thought would feature on the big day - and the result was a bizarre Aston Martin-Ford hybrid. Combining the best of the Aston Martin DB11 and the iconic Ford Mustang, the design was voted as the best looking vehicle for the highly anticipated celebrity wedding. The research, conducted by webuyanycar.com, revealed 86 per cent of people believe Harry and Meghan will hop into a British car on May 19, while one in 10 imagine the wedding motor could be a half and half American-British hybrid. But while the motor certainly has a unique look, it's very unlikely the two marquees will combine to create such a bizarre vehicle. In webuyanycar’s imaginary design, the DB11 shape forms the base, adapted with the wheels and arches of the iconic Mustang. It also sports the rear end … [Read more...] about Will this Aston Martin-Ford hybrid be the car Prince Harry and Meghan Markle drive off in following the Royal wedding?

NEW YORK — With the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle approaching, princesses were a hot topic of conversation during the recent market week for the bridal industry. Who will dress the American for her big day May 19 and what style she will choose remains a locked-down mystery. “I hope she’s got an American brand on, I really do,” said London-based designer Kate Halfpenny, founder of Halfpenny London who shows in New York twice a year to be closer to buyers. “I’d love her to be in an Oscar (de la Renta) or a Carolina (Herrera). I think she’ll be clean and simple. I think she’ll be nothing like Kate, nothing like Pippa. Maybe off the shoulder, very open but with a very lacy veil,” she said. Naeem Khan, who went glitter rock chick in a collection of after-party glitz, said whatever Markle chooses, she’ll influence the market. “I think Meghan is a very, very cool modern princess,” he said. … [Read more...] about Bridal designers talk princess moments and Meghan Markle
