Britain’s Prince George to inherit father’s miniature Aston Martin
Britain’s Prince George will inherit his father’s miniature Aston Martin.
The son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may only be two-years-old but his father is already planning on giving him the half-size V8 Volante when he’s old enough to drive it.
The car – which can reach speeds of 20mph – was tested by the Earl and Countess of Wessex’s eight-year-old son James during a recent Christmas trip to Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
A source told the Daily Express newspaper: “He was racing round the paths and having a wonderful time. You can hear the car before you see it because it’s quite noisy. James was loving every minute of it but it’s common knowledge that Prince William has got it running again so that George can have it.
“The car has been in the Sandringham museum for many years after William and Harry outgrew it but it’s always belonged to them so there was nothing to stop them using it again. Everyone is looking forward to seeing George drive it. I should think he’ll be in the car within a year.”
The car was given to William’s father, the Prince of Wales, in 1988 as a present for his two sons.
