If you’re in the market for a new car or want to own a piece of royal memorabilia that gets great mileage, you’re in luck. Only one year after purchasing the car, Prince Harry is selling his 2017 Audi RS6 Avant in Duke of Sussex Grey. Okay, so that’s not the official colour of the car, but it may as well be.
The Audi is currently listed on Auto Trader because Harry is a man of the people. The first line of the cars’ description includes Prince Harry’s name, because let’s be real, that’s going to jack up the price at least enough for Prince Harry to turn around and buy the used home gym he has his eye on from Craigslist.
Listed at $122,000, the high-end sedan has less than 5,000 miles on it and boasts heated seats and a parking package. But since most people who would consider buying this specific car are more interested in it for its relationship to the royals, let’s get down to the real details.
Prince Harry was photographed driving the Audi RS6 to Pippa Middleton’s wedding back in 2017, an event that marked one of the first official outings with his then girlfriend Meghan Markle. The pair attended Pippa’s reception together, making the 100-mile round trip from Kensington Palace to Buckleberry, Berks. So, that’s at least a few hours of duke and duchess time spent in what could be your next car. Maybe they talked about their own engagement, or who got really drunk at the wedding, or something funny the queen said! The possibilities are endless.
So, why would Harry be selling a car that Auto Trader describes as “…a smashing car perfectly suited to any aspiring royal”? Well, although baby car seats do fit in five-door sedans like the Audi, they fit even better into minivans and SUVs, especially something like the Land Rover that William and Kate bought before the birth of their son George. Let the baby rumours begin!
Just remember, if you do shell out the big bucks for Prince Harry’s car, make sure it’s Harry with two ‘r’s.
