The Queen still holds down a full time job 94, and undoubtedly puts in a fair amount of hard graft.
And it’s fair to say that many people wold love to swap places with her.
She boasts an impressive property portfolio, which includes including, but is not limited to, Windsor Castle, Kensington Palace and Sandringham House.
To sweeten the deal further, Elizabeth II is worth an estimated £418million and benefited from a £82.2m sovereign grant courtesy of the tax payer this year, the Mirror reports.
As much as Her Majesty’s competence in the wheel has not been called into question – with David Cameron implying the Queen was a dab hand when it came to car control in his new book – a further perk ensures she is free from legal reproach.
Along with her ability to form a government and bestow honours on members of the public, the head of state can and does drive the roads of Britain without having passed her test.
Unlike every other driver in the UK, the royal is not required to drive with a number plate.
The Queen’s demeanour when in the driving seat was the subject of a story earlier this year.
According to Shepard Cowper-Coles, a former British Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, in 2003 the country’s then king Abdullah had a fright when he jumped in the passenger seat while visiting Balmoral.
What is not surprising is the ageing monarch was taken aback to be driven by woman – given his country’s total ban on female drivers until 2018.
What seems more unlikely is that the King of Saudi Arabia – a country which regularly crucifies people – was left trembling by Her Majesty’s intensity on the roads.
The Middle Eastern royal even asked the Queen, through his translator, to “slow down and concentrate on the road ahead.”
