AS the Queen of England, few people feel comfortable telling Her Majesty what to do.

However, one person who is able to give her orders is the “woman under the bonnet”, which is the Queen’s comical nickname for her car’s SatNav system.

The Queen refers to her SatNav as the ‘woman under the bonnet’, it has been claimed

According to the Daily Mail, the 96-year-old monarch finds the female voice of her GPS very amusing.

A source claimed: “A few years ago she started calling her ‘the woman under the bonnet’. It was very funny. Of course she knows very well where the voice comes from. 

“But Her Majesty is very sharp. She has a brilliant sense of humour and a very quick wit.

“It always tickles people to hear her remark ‘it’s the woman under the bonnet again’ when she hears her voice.”

Despite knowing her own estates of Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral “like the back of her hand”, she does use her GPS from time to time.

This is despite the monarch famously disliking back seat drivers and the source added that the Queen “doesn’t tolerate” people lecturing her on her driving.

The Queen’s funny nickname is said to leave passengers in “fits of giggles”.

Her Majesty is the only person in the country to be able to drive without a licence, and famously has never taken a driving test.

Admittedly, this appears to be a luxury that only the Queen (and not ALL members of the Royal Family) can enjoy as one of her royal prerogatives.

What’s more, The Queen is also permitted to drive a car without a number plate – something us Commoners are not allowed to do on UK roads.

Although we can’t imagine Her Majesty does much driving around London, she has been photographed behind the wheel at her homes in Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral over the years.

Former PM David Cameron claims in his new memoir For The Record that The Queen used to tear around her Scottish estate Balmoral at “breakneck speed” in her 4×4.

The Queen first learned how to drive when she joined the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service during the Second World War when she was 18 years old.

Her Majesty trained as a driver and a mechanic in the forces and was promoted to honorary junior commander in 1945.

In fact, The Queen shocked King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia when she took him out for a spin in 1998 when he visited her home at Balmoral.

Former British Ambassador Sherard Cowper-Coles told HOARday Times: “Women are not – yet – allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, and Abdullah was not used to being driven by a woman, let alone a queen.”
