Monaco’s Royal Couple To Use Lexus Hybrids For Their Wedding

Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton is not the only Royal wedding on the calendar this year, as Monaco’s Prince Albert II (53) is set to marry South African Olympic backstroke swimmer Charlene Wittstock (33) on July 2, 2011.

But unlike most Royal weddings, there won’t be a fleet of Bentley‘s and Rolls Royce‘s to whisk away the newly married couple. Prince Albert II is instead going to make use of hybrid Lexus models.

In a statement released by Lexus, they mentioned that the prince “takes a keen interest in encouraging innovative solutions for environmental protection and sustainable development around the world, founding the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation in 2006. His Foundation supports more than 150 projects monitoring environmental evolution and protecting species endangered by climate change.”

The prince has long been a supporter of hybrid and electric mobility solutions and offers a massive tax credit to anyone who chooses to buy an electric car, although most well-to-do residents of this principality still prefer to drive around in exotic luxury vehicles.

Lexus failed to mention which hybrid models it will use to chauffeur the newly weds, but anything less than a LS600hL would be shocking.
