Viral Video Of Queen Elizabeth Driving Around In A Range Rover At 93 Has The Internet Shook
@SkyNews / Twitter

Her Majesty the Queen has always been full of surprises, but since the Duke and Duchess announced they were stepping away from their roles as senior royals, it seems England has a lot of surprises in store for viewers there and abroad.

One of the more fun surprises was last Friday, when the Queen was witnessed driving herself in a Range Rover.


The Queen formerly announced in April 2019 she would not be driving on public roads anymore, though she might occasionally be seen driving around their private estate. With all the changes coming to the royal family, however, it seems the Queen changed her mind on the matter, as she was witnessed driving herself in a Range Rover this past Friday.

In a short, eighteen-second video, the Range Rover approached an intersection, where a camera was ready to film the action. The reporter zoomed in on the Queen in the driver's seat.

At the end of the video, she turned left, and the Range Rover went out of sight.

This was her first appearance in public since the Duke and Duchess announced they were stepping down from their senior royal status, and she seemed to handle it quite well.

She was wearing layers of winter clothing, complete with a scarf layered around her neck and head. And she did at least remember to use her turning signal when she turned left at the next intersection.

You can watch the video here:

Onlookers everywhere were surprised at the appearance of the Queen.

Some questioned her ability at the age of 93 to still be driving.




Some validated her, saying she remembered to use her turning signals.

While others joked that she could give herself permission to drive at any time.




Most, however, were the most pleased at the side-eye the Queen is capable of.

She delivered it to the snoopy camera out her window when she came to a stop at the intersection stoplight.




No matter what direction the royal family takes, people must not forget Her Majesty knows her way around a vehicle.

And she proved it during her military service in WWII.


Queen, current title holder for longest reigning monarch in the world and WWII veteran.

We think she can probably do whatever she wants.

As morbid as it is, death is the inevitable yin to life's yang.

The inevitable end of our mortality looms ahead for all of us, but hopefully it's not for a long time.

That doesn't mean there are close calls along the way.

Not everyone is fortunate, but there are the lucky few who somehow managed to cheat death and lived to talk about their close calls.

A "fun fact" refers to a piece of information that might not be widely known.

Though, the "fun" in "fun fact" is often widely debatable.

Indeed, more often than not, people find or are told a "fun fact" about anything from an animal species to a famous celebrity which might make them want to cry or even throw up.

We've all heard some conspiracy theories about certain businesses, most of which are outrageously false.

That laundromats are simply a facade for shadier practices (including, not so ironically, money laundering) or that the Coca-Cola company invented "New Coke" with the express purpose of improving sales on original Coke.

But every now and then, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in certain professions.

And are eager to hear all the juicy tidbits from people working in that industry.

Finding a healthy work/life balance is extremely difficult.

Depending on their jobs, some people are barely home in time to spend any quality time with their loved ones, and weekends are hardly relaxing, as they are often devoted to chores and errands.

These are only a few reasons many people have pushed to adopt four day work weeks.

And while there seem to be multiple advantages to one's mental health and self-esteem, could eliminating 8 hours of work possibly have any downsides to it?
