Prince Charles’ $107,000 splurge

Prince Charles’ $107,000 splurge

Prince Charles is known for being environmentally conscious with the heir to the throne previously admitting that he installed solar panels on the roof of Clarence House and switched to low-energy light bulbs.

And now, the Prince of Wales has spent $107,000, on the royal family’s first electric car, the Jaguar I-Pace.

The 69-year-old customised the car by requesting it to be painted in Loire Blue, a colour not listed as being publicly available.

An electric charging station has been installed in the prince’s London home, reported The Times.

The Jaguar will join a vast collection of cars owned by the British royal family, which includes Rolls-Royces, Bentleys and Range Rovers.

Charles is not the only member of the family to appreciate Jaguars, with the Queen seen last year driving her green Jaguar after attending a church service in Windsor.

Harry also shares the same passion as his father, driving his bride Duchess Meghan in a sleek Jaguar E-type to their Frogmore House wedding reception following the ceremony.

The stylish vehicle had a number plate with the date of the Royal Wedding for the historic day.
