Prince Williams Wedding Car Disaster

The photographs from the Royal Wedding have been put into the history books no doubt about it. However there was one problem what happened which nobody noticed until now, as Prince William tried to speed off with his new wife the Duchess of Cambridge the Prince forgot to take the handbrake off the vintage car and it got off to a juddering start. Prince William thought nobody had noticed his mishap however he was wrong as The Sun’s royal photographer Arthur has made the story public after his recent appearance on the BBC’s Desert Island Discs.

The Aston Martin which 41 years old had been decked out in Royal fashion with balloons and ribbons all over the car and with all the commotion and excitement surrounding the wedding, Prince William in fact totally forgot to take the handbrake off.

The Aston Martin DB6 Volante is one of only 38 and was a gift from the Queen herself to Prince Charles for his 21st birthday, not a bad present. Prince Charles allowed William to borrow the Aston and it may be his last time when Charles hears about the recent handbrake mishap.
