BERTIE IS DRIVING! :)
Also, the original car --a black 1939 Daimler DB18 Drophead Coupé-- is still in existence today and from what I have read, is well-loved and looked after by its current owner!

Royal Family Tidbit of the Day
Tumblr media
"The Bowes-Lyons were by no means overawed when Prince Albert, Duke of York, the second son of King George V and Queen Mary, started driving over from Balmoral to pay court to their youngest daughter (and ninth child) Elizabeth in the autumn of 1920. It opened the prospect of an honourable connection for the family, of course, but the Bowes-Lyons were not short on connections, and a life of royal duty seemed a cruel sentence for a carefree child like Elizabeth. She was barely twenty. Lady Strathmore made quite sure that her daughter was not seduced by the tinsel that might have attracted another mother to a royal connection, and she was not surprised when, in the spring of 1921, Lady Elizabeth turned down Prince Albert's first proposal of marriage.'

'King George V had not thought much of his son's chances with Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. 'You'll be a lucky fellow,' he said, 'if she accepts you.' But in January 1923, a brief telegram to Sandringham told the King and Queen that their quiet son had been rewarded for his tenacity. 'All right, Bertie.' The young man's joy transformed him. 'Bertie is supremely happy,' Queen Mary wrote on the night of 20 January 1923 after Lady Elizabeth had been with her parents to stay at Sandringham.'

'And not even the King's passion for time-keeping was proof against his future daughter-in-law. She was always an unpunctual person, but when she arrived late at the royal dinner table, she was invariably forgiven. 'You are not late, my dear,' King George V would say, 'we must have sat down two minutes too early.'

Henry ‘Chips’ Channon: The Diaries (Vol. 1), 1918-38, entry for 16th January 1923
Tuesday 16th January
I was so startled and almost fell out of bed, when I read in the Court Circular that their ‘Majesties are much pleased to announce the engagement of their second son Albert, Duke of York,¹ with The Lady Elizabeth Lyon’. I was left numb. We have all hoped and waited so long for this romance to prosper that we had begun to despair that she would ever accept him. He has been the most ardent of wooers and was apparently at St Paul’s Walden [Bury]² on Sunday, when he at last persuaded her. He motored at once to Sandringham and the announcement is the result; the royalties allowing her no time to change her mind. The Lyon family are rather taken by surprise as they had not expected the official announcement would appear so soon. He is the luckiest of men and not a man in England today does not envy HRH!! The clubs are in gloom; and already photographers display photographs of our future Princess for large crowds to gaze at. Bruton Street³ is impassable because of the people. Everybody is delighted and I have written to console poor Gage.
1.  Prince Albert Frederick Arthur George (1895–1952), second son of King George V and Queen Mary, was created Duke of York in 1920. He served in the Royal Navy in the Great War and was mentioned in dispatches for his service in the Battle of Jutland. Following the abdication of his brother, King Edward VIII, in 1936, he became King George VI of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and Emperor of India.
2.  The Bowes-Lyon house in Hertfordshire.
3.  The Bowes-Lyon house in London, where Queen Elizabeth II would be born in 1926.

Elizabeth and Philip
Tumblr media
A stone slab engraved with the names of Queen Elizabeth II, her late husband Prince Philip, and her parents King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, has been installed at St George's Chapel in Windsor / Handout via Evening Standard. 
The stone, which is new, has replaced the black stone slab set into the floor which had featured the names George VI and Elizabeth in gold lettering.The fresh stone now contains, in list form, “George VI 1895-1952” and “Elizabeth 1900-2002” followed by a metal Garter Star, and then “Elizabeth II 1926-2022” and “Philip 1921-2021”.
All four royals were members of the Order of the Garter, which has St George’s Chapel as its spiritual home.
- Evening Standard 
According to Royal Central Sept 21, 2022
The simplest of gravestones has been chosen for the longest reigning Monarch in British history.Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest in the King George VI Memorial Chapel at Windsor on the evening of September 19th 2022 and now her tomb bears its final inscription.Her Late Majesty lies beneath a slab engraved with ‘Elizabeth II” and her dates, ‘1926 – 2022’. The stone also includes the permanent memorials for her husband, father and mother who she is buried alongside.The stone shows ‘George VI, 1895 – 1952’, ‘Elizabeth, 1900 – 2002’, ‘Elizabeth II, 1926 – 2022’ and ‘Philip, 1921 – 2021’.

The tombstone of George VI and Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother which has now been replaced with a new version after their daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, and Prince Philip were buried alongside them (By VCR Giulio19 – Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0, Wiki Commons)
“Visitors will be able to pay their respects to Her Late Majesty from September 29th 2022 when Windsor Castle reopens to the public.”
The tombstone is new, replacing the one that had been put into the Chapel in 2002 following the burial of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother.
Also buried in the tiny chapel are the ashes of Princess Margaret, the only sister of Queen Elizabeth II. There is a separate gravestone for Her Late Royal Highness.
The chapel also contains an engraving of lines from the poem, The Gate of the Year, which King George VI quoted in his Christmas message in 1939 as Britain was at war. The most famous words of the poem are featured on the wrought iron gates that separate the chapel from the main part of St. George’s Chapel. They read ‘I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year ‘Give me light that I may tread safely into the unknown”.
Prince Philip was laid to rest alongside Queen Elizabeth II in the same family service on September 19th 2022. His coffin had rested in the Royal Vault at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor since his funeral in April 2021. The couple, who were married for 73 years, had always intended to be buried together and had agreed that whoever passed away first would ”wait” for the other so that their final resting place would be side by side.
Visitors will be able to pay their respects to Her Late Majesty from September 29th 2022 when Windsor Castle reopens to the public. Admission to St. George’s Chapel is included in the ticket although on Sunday, the chapel is only open for worship.
Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8th 2022 at Balmoral. She was 96 and had reigned for 70 years.
