Queen Elizabeth II's hearse is a Jaguar like her mother's
Queen Elizabeth II's casket was transported to London Tuesday evening via a Royal Air Force jet and a state hearse befitting a British monarch.
The car was a Jaguar XF sedan converted into a hearse by Wilcox Limousines.
The specialty car builder was also responsible for the Jaguar XJ-based hearse used during the funeral services for the queen mother in 2002.
The black vehicle features a particularly tall roof and thin pillars that accommodate the large glass windows and skylight on the casket compartment, which is brightly illuminated.

Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip's casket was transported by a slightly less conventional vehicle during his funeral services last year.

It was a Land Rover Defender custom built with a platform for the casket in the fashion of a horse-drawn gun carriage-type hearse that Philip helped design.
He reportedly once asked Elizabeth to "just stick me in the back of a Land Rover and drive me to Windsor" prior to his death.
