Richard Charlesworth, Bentley’s Director of Royal and VIP Relations, said:
The opportunity to build and now support the State Limousine is a great source of pride for everyone at Bentley and many of our customers; it is perhaps one of the most recognised and photographed cars in the world.
The Coronation Festival is both an opportunity for our company to show our appreciation for The Queen’s achievements and to play a part in creating a special event that puts the remarkable people and companies holding the Royal Warrant of Appointment in the limelight.
