Royal wedding car ‘becomes crowd attraction’

Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding car became an attraction for amateur photographers at an event in Fairford, Gloucestershire.

The royal duo – who tied the knot in 2011 – drove the 46-year-old Aston Martin on the day of their wedding and the Prince Charles-owned vehicle was a star turn when the 66-year-old father-of-two recently attended a concert for the Music In Country Churches charity he supports.

One onlooker told PEOPLE magazine: “I’ve been to this event a few times but I’ve never seen so many people try this before.

“There were so many people they were almost queuing up to have their picture taken in front of the car. Some people were almost pressing their noses up against the windows.”

Prince Charles drove his Aston Martin Volante DB6 MKII from his Highgrove home to the venue, where he parked it outside.

Shortly afterwards, as many as 40 to 50 people started crowding around the vehicle, taking pictures with it on their mobile phones and cameras.

Meanwhile, Charles’ eldest son Prince William recently returned to his royal duties following the birth of his second child, Princess Charlotte, earlier this month.

He attended a wildlife task force meeting at the headquarters of the International Union for Conservation of Nature in Switzerland.
