At Wheels-Alive, together with the nation we are deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and extend sincere condolences to all members of the Royal Family.
Her Majesty was, of course, much-loved in Britain and around the world.
She had many motoring connections too…
As Princess Elizabeth at the time, she became a member of the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) in 1945, and was the first female member of the Royal Family to be a full-time active member of the Armed Services.
While in the ATS she was taught to drive and to maintain vehicles.
She was a keen motorist and enjoyed driving throughout her life.
