Queen Elizabeth II drove full speed ahead into our hearts earlier this week when she was spotted driving around in her Jaguar. 

So what better way to cruise into the weekend than by taking a drive down memory lane?

In our research, we learned that while there is one month in particular you might be more likely to spot her behind the wheel, she has done quite a bit of driving over the years, despite the fact that she does not ― wait for it ― have a driver’s license
