Royal Aston Martin up for sale

Fans of the newly married royal couple will have had plenty of chances to buy tea towels and other memorabilia to commemorate the big day, but there are a few things that the average royalist would struggle to get hold of.

Hardcore fans now have the chance to complete the set of trinkets, however, as Bonhams are auctioning two Aston Martins identical to the one Prince William used to drive his new bride from Buckingham Palace to Clarence House on the afternoon of their wedding day.
The DB6 used on the day belonged to William's father, Prince Charles, who was given the car as a 21st birthday present from the Queen.

The two cars up for sale are both 1968 models, and are up for sale on 21 May at Newport Pagnell. Lot number 305, registration number NEL 762F, is estimated to sell for £210,000-£240,000, while PRE 635F, lot number 325 is expected to make between £200,000 and £250,000.
