William and Kate take the royal baby home in a Range Rover


Jaguar vehicles during the Coronation festival

Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, emerged from the hospital with their newborn son and took him home in a Range Rover, with William driving. The as-yet unnamed baby was in a proper infant car seat, which William dutifully buckled in the back seat, before take the steering wheel.

Jaguar Land Rover is the only automotive manufacturer to hold all three Royal Warrants. This means that it supplies Her Majesty The Queen, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh and His Royal Highness The Price of Wales. The company was recently the official motor partner for the Coronation Festival, marking the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s coronation.

The two car companies hold an even longer relationship with the Crown. Jaguar and Land Rover were each granted their first Royal Warrants in 1951, a year before The Queen ascended the Throne.
