Princess Di's Car

Ready to 'Rolls' for Royal Wedding

4/3/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Princess Diana rode in this luxury car less than a year before she died -- and now, TMZ has learned, the beautiful Rolls Royce is being offered up to her son Prince William ... for his wedding day.

A rep for Volo Auto Museum in Chicago tells TMZ they would be honored if Prince William and Kate Middleton used the priceless car as transportation for their wedding next month.

The car was purchased specifically for Diana’s visit to the Windy City in 1996 -- her last time in the U.S. before she died -- and it's been sitting in the museum since 2007.

So far no word on whether the Prince will take them up on their offer.

This Rolls may not be perfect, but it's in better shape than the last Mercedes she was in...

These people really should KEEP UP with the proper news regarding the wedding.The couple are using the same vintage car that was once the Queen Mother's and is now the property of her favorite grandson,Charles.It is the same car that was attacked last year!

I think that this is a very tasteless attempt at garnering publicity for their business.

FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!! This is Kate's wedding not, Diana's. Let this young woman enjoy the most important day of her life without pushing Diana on her. NOT FAIR!!! Sorry Diana lost her life so tragically but, now it is Kate's time to shine. Let her enjoy the life she is about to step into!

there is seriously something wrong with this family...

it was not tacky enough that he offered his dead mother's ring as an offer of engagement to his girlfriend, but now the family's offering his dead mother's car to ride in on his wedding day?

now before anyone spazzes, let me elaborate about the "acceptibility" of dead people's posessions. If you're passing down a family ring perhaps from a grandmother who died of old age (or at least died AT an old age) or driving around in a car left behind by a dead person because you have no other means of transportation, then i feel that it should be allowed...

but his mother died at a young age, in a car crash with her lover...

tacky...

The ring is an HEIRLOOM;most of the royal family's jewelry are heirlooms!
Seriously,I have already posted the CORRECT information which came from Clarence House--the car that will be used is the QUEEN MOTHER'S car that Charles inherited,the same car that was attacked last year!
If people really want to know the TRUTH about what is happening,and this includes TMZ which is failing to report correctly,accurately and truthfully use these links:

Please    

The royal couple isn't even riding in a car. Kate will be brought to the church in the Rolls that Charles and Camilla were in during the student riots. The married couple will leave the Abbey in a carriage. This has been widely reported.

This story is just a ploy to get some free advertising and further use Diana's name to try and gain revenue. Let her be.
