• Jaguar Land Rover drove Royal heritage vehicles along London route
• Celebration of 60 years since Her Majesty The Queen’s Coronation
• 1953 Land Rover Series 1 Royal Review and 1955 Jaguar Mark VIIM Saloon included

Jaguar Land Rover, official motor partner to The Coronation Festival, drove a selection of its Royal heritage vehicles along a central London route in a celebration of 60 years since Her Majesty The Queen’s Coronation. The Royal heritage vehicles included the 1953 Land Rover Series 1 Royal Review - the first bespoke Royal Land Rover – and a 1955 Jaguar MARK VIIM Saloon, once owned by the Queen mother.

In an effort to echo the original procession driven by the Queen in 1953, the route passed famous landmarks such as Horse Guards Parade, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament and Marble Arch, then regrouped back on one of the UK’s most celebrated roads, The Mall.
