Princess Diana car is a wedding day gift for someone

Royal runabout: Diana drives princes PICTURE: TRIANGLE

PRINCESS Diana’s famous green Audi is up for sale on the same day her son Prince Harry is getting married.

The convertible became one of the most photographed vehicles of its era when Diana was loaned it in the summer of 1994.

She used it to ferry around young William and Harry and also for trips to the gym. Her choice of a German car was controversial as the royals tended to stick to British models.

It was sold after Diana returned it to the London dealer but has only had four owners since and has just 22,000 miles on the clock.

Auctioneer Historics at Brooklands expects it to fetch between £49,000 and £62,000. It goes under the hammer on May 19 at Iver, Buckinghamshire, just nine miles from Windsor, where Harry will wed Meghan Markle.

A spokesman for Historics said: ‘It really is an amazing piece of motoring history.’
