Windsor Castle hosts elegant car show

The Prince of Wales' prized 1969 Aston Martin was a star attraction at the Concours of Elegance held in Windsor at the weekend.

The famous car - one of only a handful of its type ever made - was last seen leaving the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding reception.

But on Saturday (September 8) and Sunday (September 9) it was one of 60 classic cars from all over the world on display to the public in the Quadrangle in the castle. It was the first time the Queen had allowed the castle to be used for such a spectacular automobile show.

The cars were driven along the Long Walk to the castle by their owners on Friday.

Then on Sunday a special display of cars representing each year of the Queen's reign formed a thrilling procession along Windsor High Street in procession.

The whole concours was organised by Thorough Events and raised thousands for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and East Anglia's Children's Hospices.
