(Photo by Ben…Queen Elizabeth II is the only person in the United Kingdom allowed to drive without a license, and she’s not giving up that privilege anytime soon.

When she’s not serving as the mother of her country, the Queen loves driving, often taking her family for spins in her Range Rover. And on Sunday, the 91-year-old great-grandmother was spotted in her green Jaguar, taking a spin after attending church services in Windsor.

The Internet deemed the photo instantly iconic.

The Queen may be a noted car aficionado, but her solo outings may become more frequent. Last Thursday, Buckingham Palace announced that her husband, Prince Phillip, 95, will no longer carry out his public role starting this fall, though the Queen will continue to attend her full program of official engagements.

“I can’t stand up much longer,” Phillip joked at a public appearance Thursday when an onlooker expressed sadness at his decision to “stand down.”

Elizabeth first learned how to drive during WWII, serving as a mechanic for the U.K’s Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service, and she is the only person in the country who doesn’t legally need a license or official plates behind the wheel.
