Royal Wedding JAG Number Plate Revealed
It is being called a Royal Wedding of change, from multicultural sermons, gospel music and the bride being given away by her father-in-law - but there were more subtle changes revealed as well.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, were seen leaving Windsor Castle for their party venue at Frogmore House in a beautiful silver Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero – ran completely on electricity.
The car is based on a 1968 British classic, and the bride and groom made the decision to be eco-friendly in their transportation after the wedding.
Costing a cool £350,000, the motor was leased to the royal couple for the day, and eagle-eyed viewers would have noticed a bespoke registration plate spelling out the date of the wedding: E190518.
Racing driver Sir Jackie Stewart said of the original: "Without a doubt, the most beautiful car that has ever been mass produced.
"Ever since it was introduced in 1960 it changed the course of car design and the industry forever."

Rrahul Tanejaa, 37, owner of an event management company, has broken a record by paying the highest amount for procuring a premium registration number for his Jaguar car.
As has been confirmed by officials at Jaipur Transport Department, Tanejaa spent Rs 16 lakhs for car registration number RJ 45 CG 0001 which is the highest anyone has paid for a premium registration number to date in the state. Tanejaa bought his Rs 1.5 crore Jaguar in March but waited patiently for 6 weeks before he could get this particular number plate ending with 0001.
Not just this particular Jaguar car, but every car in the possession of Tanejaa sports 0001 registration number plate. His fetish for this particular number is not just limited to his cars as even his mobile phone has five 1’s in it.
Tanejaa is the owner of many luxury cars and has spent lakhs of rupees over the years in procuring fancy number plates all of which have the digits 0001. These luxury cars include a BMW 5 Series purchased in 2011 for which he paid an additional INR 10.31 lakhs for number plate RJ 14 CP 0001. The second hand Skoda Laura was purchased just because it sported a number plate RJ 20 CB 0001.
This fetish does not only extend to cars and mobile phones but he even bought a second hand scooter just because its numbers added up to 1. The number was RJ 14 23M 2323 with 2+3+2+3 = 10 = 1.
Tanejaa explains this fetish with number 1. His life has not always been a smooth journey. He stared off with no money, his father was working at a tyre puncture shop. From an early age, Tanejaa had to do all sorts of odd jobs – selling kites, rakhi and holi colors and has even driven an autorickshaw at night to evade being caught by the cops as he did not have a driving license. Now that he has made his money he wishes to flaunt it and strongly believes in the number 1.
How popular any name or initial it contains is: You are more likely to get good money for a registration plate that spells out a name like 5UE than you are with a more unusual name, simply because there is more demand for Sue (or Dave or Mel) than there would be for Hector, Primrose or Zebedee
How valuable the letters and numbers the plate contains are: in terms of numbers, lower numbers with fewer digits tend to be the most valuable when reselling personalised number plates, making BOB 1 more valuable than BOB 379. Sequential numbers (123, 456 etc.) and repeated numbers (444, 88) are more popular than random combinations, and special occasion numbers like 18 and 21 can also boost a number plate’s value a little. In terms of the letters in a number plate, the likelihood of a series of letters being a name or a person’s initials increases the value of the plate, too.
