“So, women aren’t allowed to drive in your country? Let one show you what one thinks of that.”Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
is, and always has been, awesome.
In 1998, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, then the crown prince, was visiting the Queen at her estate in Scotland. He accepted her offer of a tour of the grounds—and she hopped in the driver’s seat and tore around the place, as he begged her to slow down and be more careful.
Elizabeth, as an 18-year-old princess and heir to the throne, was a military truck driver in World War II. She is the only living head of state to have served in that war. And she’s pretty badass.http://www.vox.com/2015/1/23/7877243/king-abdullah-queen-drive
