Prince Charles took Camilla for a joy ride in a luxurious car in Cuba – then they sat beside John Lennon!

By Meaghan Wray

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall made royal history with their visit to Cuba (no British royals had ever visited before!), and what better way to celebrate than with a luxurious joy ride around Havana? A known lover of fine vehicles, the future King drove his wife in an old school MG car around the eclectic town for a few fun activities on Tuesday (March 26).

First stop? A British classic car convention! The dynamic duo pulled up to the city's exciting event in what appeared to be a 1950 MG TD car. Charles, 70, looked dapper as ever, sporting a pair of black shades and a crisp beige suit, while his wife dazzled in a mint-green dress and her trademark string of pearls.

It's well-documented that Prince William and Prince Harry's father is a lover of the British car producer – in fact, the royal owned a royal blue MG MGC GT 1967 model, which can now be seen at the Sandringham Estate museum. He was often spotted driving to and from polo matches in that very car, which has since been replaced by his Aston Martin car (which reportedly runs on white wine and whey, per his environmentally conscious way of living!).

After their trip to the auto show – where he and Camilla checked out some classic motorbikes and chatted with local vehicle fanatics – the two posed alongside a bench statue of John Lennon. It was a very British afternoon, indeed! The Beatles, of course, had some connection to the Royal Family, having performed at the annual Royal Variety Show in 1963 in the presence of the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon.
