King Edward VII became the first reigning British monarch to travel by car, when John Scott-Montague drove him through the New Forest in a 24 hp Daimler. Montagu later said of the trip: ‘I distinctly remember that His Majesty displayed immense interest in the details of the car … and with his wonderful alertness of mind he had evidently grasped what a remarkable effect upon the locomotion of the world the coming of the motor car would have.’
