CD 175 Queen

When we began work on this magazine, little did we know that we’d have a new monarch by the time it was published.

The late Queen Elizabeth II took a keen interest in the automotive industry during her 70 years on the throne, and it wasn’t just factories she was given tours round, either.

Join us as we take a look at some of the memorable visits that Her Majesty made at home and abroad.
