Princess Eu­ge­nie shaken and stirred by Bond’s car

Belfast Telegraph - - NEWS | ROYAL WEDDING - BY TONY JONES, PA

JACK Brooks­bank re­vealed he has a li­cence to thrill when he whisked new wife Princess Eu­ge­nie away from their wed­ding re­cep­tion in a James Bond car.

The As­ton Martin DB10 was clearly a sur­prise for Eu­ge­nie who said “wow” and was left open-mouthed when she saw it.

Eight mod­els were made to film the 2015 movie Spec­tre star­ring Daniel Craig, and Jack man­aged to get the keys to one of the cov­eted cars. Eu­ge­nie first spot­ted the As­ton Martin when the new­ly­weds ar­rived at the Equerry’s en­trance at Wind­sor Cas­tle to say their good­byes.

A few min­utes be­fore they ar­rived, the Duke of York strode from the cas­tle to watch the Royal House­hold’s trans­port man­ager Alex Garty ar­rive in the car and ma­noeu­vre it into po­si­tion.

An­drew joked he wanted it a few feet for­ward and quipped “no pres­sure” as Mr Garty gin­gerly moved the car.

When the bride tried to get into the As­ton Martin the groom and Beatrice quickly re­alised they had to ac­com­mo­date the large train of her wed­ding dress, de­signed by Peter Pilotto and Christo­pher De Vos.

The pair spent a few min­utes fold­ing the yards of ma­te­rial into the As­ton Martin be­fore care­fully shut­ting the door.

Sarah, Duchess of York and Mike and Zara Tindall were among the wed­ding guests who waved the cou­ple off as they left to pre­pare for their evening cel­e­bra­tions.
