Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Drove a Vintage Jaguar to Their Wedding Reception
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the luncheon after their wedding at Windsor Castle, the newlyweds hopped into a snazzy vintage Jaguar that looked straight out of a James Bond movie.
Looking like James Bond himself, Prince Harry helps his new bride into the Jaguar before the drive to Frogmore House.

The electric model is quicker than the original E-Type—going from 0 10 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) takes just 5.5 seconds, about one second faster than a Series 1 E-Type.
The car's license plate is today's date.
There's no denying that the car is perfect for an elegant wedding, and when Pippa Middleton married James Matthews last year, the couple drove off in a 1961 E-Type that is reportedly the oldest in the world.

Whether the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex get to keep the Concept Zero remains to be seen, but here's a sweet suggestion that it's theirs for good—its license plate features today's date, which will, of course, be the date of their anniversary in the future.
