The Queen's new palace on wheels: Wood from Newton's tree. A Waterloo bullet. Metal from a Dambuster. Unveiled for the opening of parliament today, carriage that's a mobile museum of our history
With the latest in 21st-century technology plus quite a bit from the 19th it is unique.
And despite having travelled by Concorde, Royal Yacht, elephant and South Sea canoe, the Queen has never been carried in anything quite like the transport which will take her to today's State Opening of Parliament.
Unveiled for the first time, the new Diamond Jubilee State Coach is only the second royal carriage to be built in a century and joins the unrivalled royal collection of coaches, phaetons, landaus, broughams and barouches.
