Re: Queen Elizabeth goes to church

Shouldn't she wear a seatbelt, even in the back seat?  Oh well, I understand it's just a short drive to the church; Anne, her husband, and Jackie Stewart walked.

Re: Queen Elizabeth goes to church

I wonder if she tells her staff what she wants to wear of if they give her choices from whch to select.  Either way, she always looks so nice.

Re: Queen Elizabeth goes to church

@ValuSkr I just read an article that said the royals do not wear seatbelts for their personal safety.  If there is an emergency, they can get out of the car quickly.  I know that every royal has done some type of training to get out of dangerous situations and this is one of the things that is included.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

If that is true, that explains why di did not have a seatbelt on.

       Not wearing a seat belt didn't work out so well for her.  I suspect that the no seat belt thing died when poor Diana died.  The older Royals don't wear seat belts because they don't want to wear seat belts and there's no one around who can make them.  I read a recent article that said the younger royals do wear them.  It's funny though because everyone who doesn't wear a seat belt uses that same old time excuse "what if I have to get out quickly".  Emergency responders will tell you that the risk of iinjury far and a way out weighs the risk of being trapped in a car, which is very rare.

@ValuSkr She should!  And Princess Diana, who was in the back seat, would agree I'm sure, if she were alive.

I used to work for an otherwise very intelligent man who told me that he didn't wear a seatbelt because if he was in an accident he wanted "to be thrown from the wreck".
