Queen Elizabeth rides motorhome for first time
Nov 23, 2012, 12:02 GMT
Britain's Queen Elizabeth paid a visit to a mobile home yesterday (22.11.12).
The 86-year-old monarch and her husband Prince Philip viewed the Approach SE 760 motorhome while on a visit to Bristol, and even travelled 200 metres in it, in what is thought to be her first trip in such a vehicle.
Although different from her usual surroundings at Buckingham Palace, the queen was said to have been impressed by what she saw.
Nick Howard, managing director of Bailey of Bristol's, said: 'They were impressed with it and how it was fully equipped.
'The queen said it was a 'real home from home' in terms of its feel.'
In addition to her residence in London, the queen has multiple other places to live, including the Balmoral Estate, where she and the extended royal family - including Prince William, Duchess Catherine of Cambridge and Prince Charles - like to spend Christmas.
They also own the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
