As inform the auctioneers, the car Ford Escort, was sold to the bidder by phone. The car was a wedding gift to Princess Diana by her husband, Prince Charles.

In March 2019, an armored Rolls-Royce limousine that was in Princess Diana’s possession during a visit to the United States in 1990 was up for sale.
An ad published on the Bring a Trailer website stated that the 1987 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur had never been in an accident and had mileage of about 100,000 kilometers. It was ordered by the British Foreign Office for its embassy in the United States, its body was reinforced with steel and kevlar plates, and the windows were replaced with polycarbonate ones.
