PRINCE PHILIP IS donating his green London Metrocab to the Sandringham Museum after 18 years behind the wheel.
The Duke of Edinburgh had driven the cab on the streets of the capital since 1999 in an attempt to blend in with the normal traffic, despite many sightings by tourists and members of the public.
A spokesman for the Sandringham Museum said:
HRH the Duke of Edinburgh’s taxi, which he used for travelling to both official and private engagements in London, has arrived at Sandringham and has been added to the display in the royal garages.
The Metrocab needed extensive repairs to keep it on the road and the Palace decided it was a good time to hand it over to the museum, where it will share space with 20 other vehicles including the Queen Mother’s golf buggy.
