The Queen doesn’t need a driver’s licensev


Like passports, British driving licenses are also issued in her name only. This means that she is able to drive without the need for a driver’s license.

She began driving when she was just 19 years old, back in 1945. Even at this young age, she knew her way around a car.

When she turned 18, she joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service during WWII and trained as a truck driver and a mechanic.

Although she is often driven around by selected members of her Royal staff now, it’s not uncommon for her to drive herself on her own private land or find a nice place to take her Corgies for a walk.

While those two weren't at Balmoral, the family kept a united front during the funeral proceedings, which were remarkable and historical; for many, since the queen reigned for so long, it was the first time they had witnessed a British monarch's funeral. It was a touching affair, and King Charles III issued a statement that reflected the country's grief. "We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother," he said, according to the BBC. "I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world."
