Queen goes green



Queen goes green
The queen has decided to join the quest to cut carbon emissions by converting two of her Bentleys to run on biofuels, the Daily Mail has revealed.

Her Majesty's two state limousines are worth around £10 million each and one was a present from Bentley to celebrate her Golden Jubilee in 2002.

It marks a new greener image for the luxury vehicle maker which is producing a new range of engines boasting a 40 per cent improvement in fuel economy.

According to the car manufacturer, the Royal Family has been very supportive of its decision to go green.

A Bentley executive told the newspaper: "We have a lot of support from the Royal Family for our biofuel strategy. It is something about which they all take a keen interest."

Meanwhile, Prince Charles has said that issues regarding the environment need to be treated with the same urgency as the financial downturn.

He told a business forum: "Just as the world is hopefully coming together to tackle the credit crunch, so we need to work together even more powerfully, and with the same sense of urgency, to tackle climate change."
