Queen of England and Land Rover Platinum Jubilee
Land Rover has appropriately celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee to commemorate her 70th anniversary on the throne.
At the Mall, the Land Rovers parade following the inauguration in 1953 made it possible to be fascinated by the famous, popular VIP models.
The full varieties of the old Land Rovers were represented.
Starting with the “SNX 910”, Land Rover presented at the 1948 Amsterdam Vehicle Exhibition, “H166 HUE”, the last defender to leave the ranks on January 29, 2016.
Also, the private Land of Maurice Wilks (Land developer in Rover), “GXC 639C”, which was the first layer II representing the 2nd generation.
But, there were also several Royal Land Rovers on the convoy, and Queen’s Fleet license numbers.
‘JYV 1D’ was the Duke of Edinburgh’s favorite Series III 109 Station Wagon in the 1970s.
‘A444 RYV’ was the Queen’s favorite 110 Defender. ‘NXN 1’ one of the first Serie I 86-inchers to play the inaugural badge in 1953 and owned by Lord Mountbatten.
Modernity was also represented by the royal blue Defender 90 privately owned by Jaguar Land Rover Creative Director Gerry McGovern.
Land Rover has a long history with the Royal Family, including being one of the very few UK companies to hold all 4 Royal Guarantee aka ‘Royal Warrant’ guarantees.
