It was a scene that surely delighted the royal crowds: a smiling monarch being driven around the Chelsea Flower earlier today show in a “golf buggy.” Her Majesty has been patron of The Royal Horticultural Society, which puts on the magnificent show, since 1952.
The new wheels have been rolled out (ha!) as part of a broader effort for her comfort, according to Buckingham Palace, and one thinks they’re quite spiffy.

According to the Daily Mail, the battery-powered golf cart is made by Danish company Garia and costs over $77,000. Why? Because it apparently features a mini-fridge, a tablet screen, 14-inch alloy wheels, a heated windscreen and cup holders. Why else? Because Q. Liz is WURTH IT.
Today was a royal preview of the show, which officially kicks off tomorrow. The Earl and Countess of Wessex, as well as Princess Eugenie and her husband were also at the show.
