The Queen owns Britain's most prestigious number plate – here are the other most expensive ones on the road
THE NATION is gearing up to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, but we should also be celebrating her number plate.
Not many people know that this royal registration is one of the most prestigious in Britain.
Her Majesty doesn't actually need number plates on her cars, or in fact a licence to drive them.
That's just one of the many perks of the top job.
However, she does own number plates and the most prestigious of the lot is 'A7', one of the first plates ever seen on British roads awarded in 1903.
It was different back then, because the plates were given out on a first-come-first-served basis.

'A1' was awarded to Earl Russell who queued up all night at the London City Council offices to bag the first plate.
We doubt the Queen did the same for hers.
But there are some other plates that are extremely rare on our roads and command a fitting price.
The first of those is 'F1' and has the potential to become the UK's most valuable.
It was purchased for just under half a million pounds by car-tuning tycoon Afzal Kahn in 2006, but has since increased its valued significantly.
Kahn allegedly turned down a £6 million offer in 2014, and had the plate on the market for almost £10 million.
It is still registered to Kahn's Bugatti Veyron.
