Badass Queen

With the sad news of the passing of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud came a lighthearted anecdote of a visit the then Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia made to Great Britain back in 1998. While visiting Balmoral he was treated to a tour and to his surprise the Queen took her seat behind the wheel.
