Something truly unusual for a reigning British monarch,was recently spotted behind the wheels of her green Range Rover taking a spin at the royals’ sprawling Balmoral estate in England.
By choosing to drive the Range Rover herself instead of scooting around in her good old chaffeured Bentley, the cool royal grandma proved she is just like any of us ordinary folk, in-fact much cooler. Now you may ask how so?
Well, the 86-year-old raises corgis, sky drops in parachutes out of planes withkinds and to top it even hangs out with some remarkable female friends. Can we ordinary folk match that?
It was over the weekend, that Duchess Kate’s grand-ma-in-law, who could barely reach the steering wheel of her – Range Rover SUV was seen expertly navigating the vehicle in Balmoral estate, en-route while returning from a grouse shoot.
But instead of her trademark floral hats or flamboyant fascinators like that ofor something much more customary for a royal, she had covered her short locks in an unusual headgear – a chic grey-colored Hoodie or what could be a scarf pinned on both sides to look like a hoodie.

Due to the matriarch’s lovable attribute of driving her own Range Rover in a modern style hoodie, she has even been featured in the ‘Just Like Us’ pages of Us Magazine which otherwise usually covers the Duchess of Cambridge, the universally adored Duchess Kate.
What is most surprising is that at 86, Queen Elizabeth has such good eye sight and reflexes that she can even drive herself anywhere. Also what is wonderful is that like Kate Middleton she is showing the world that at the end of the day, she is just like any of us.
