Royal fans outside Buckingham Palace in London were given a surprise earlier today as the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was spotted driving herself into the queen's residence, sparking speculation over the reasons for her visit.
Kate appeared in good spirits and smiled and waved to the crowds as she drove her Range Rover through the gates of Buckingham Palace in a video taken by Instagram user melissagrflx and reported in the Daily Express. Unusually, there didn't appear to be any royal security officers alongside her as the passenger seat of the car was empty
But the Range Rover did have blacked out rear windows, meaning that her security detail could have been sat there. Tourists and social media users have also speculated that her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis could also have been in the car with her.
