The Queen of England has a more than a fondness for British cars of course, along with a whole fleet of same.
But if Her Majesty can be said to have a favorite marque, we’d put our pound notes on Land Rover.
The Queen does a royal wave from her Land Rover in 1954

Not a bad way to wave at the adoring masses…
