Prince makes Land Rover discovery


http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/s...st/7010548.stm



Prince Charles has come across a Land Rover belonging to his late grandfather which had been sitting in a garage for 40 years.

The prince was visiting the garage in Ballater, Aberdeenshire, which has had the vehicle since the 1960s.

It was owned by King George VI, who used it during stays at nearby Balmoral Castle on Royal Deeside.

Garage owner Robert Pringle said: "The prince was very interested in it. He was delighted."

'Runs well'

Prince Charles, who is known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland, went round the car, which is to be refurbished, for a closer inspection.

The Duke and the Duchess of Rothesay were touring businesses including Pringle's Garage.

Mr Pringle said: "The Land Rover belonged to the late King and was bought by us in 1966.

"We are planning to do it up. It is a beautiful car and it still runs well."
