A Rolls-Royce that carried Princess Diana on her first-ever visit to the U.S. is up for auction


When she was alive she was known as an ambassador of peace, and after her death too, Princess Diana continues to support charitable causes. This time around, the 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow in which Prince Charles and Princess Di arrived at the White House in the US in 1985 is set to go under the hammer, on the same date as the visit, exactly 27 years later. The Volo Auto Museum will be auctioning off the vehicle which has been estimated at $2 million on eBay. The restructured car sports a new silver paintjob, and features red leather interior. It comes with a 600-pound, inches-thick windshield and rear window, with the bullet-proof side windows, have been created to keep out “toxic gas exposure”.
