Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall attended the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in their vintage Aston Martin. The vintage car runs on bioethanol sources from wine and cheese by-products.
Prince Charles shows his appearance in a different style with Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla. They show their appearances in the opening ceremony for the Commonwealth Games on Thursday evening. Prince Charles drives his vintage Aston Martin which needs wine whey and cheese products to run.
Similarly, the Prince of Wales bought the car in the year 1970. However, he later converted the car to run on biofuels. The vehicles that run using ethanol created from cheese-making whey and wine unfit for human consumption. Prince Charles always takes a stand for pollution-free events. Likewise, he changes his car to reduce pollution and be eco-friendly. He also stated,
“We are faced at this moment with the horrific effects of pollution in all its cancerous forms.”
Though at first, the engineers were sure that the car won’t work. But later they were wrong as it works more nicely than before. Talking about this, Prince Charles said in the year 2018,
“At first, the engineers weren’t convinced that the conversion would work, but I insisted that it would. When the conversion was done, they had to admit that the car now performs better than ever.”

“Over the years, the coming together of so many for the ‘Friendly Games’ has created memorable shared experiences, established long-standing relationships, and even created some friendly rivalries! But above all they remind us of our connection with one another, wherever we may be in the world, as part of the Commonwealth family of nations.”
