Scope and content

London. Prince Charles takes the wheel for a spin around Buckingham Palace quadrangle today in Britain's only Silver Jubilee taxi. His passenger climbing into the rear seat is the cab's official driver, Mr Ted Ritchie, of Wandsworth, who was chosen for the job from London's 16,000 taxi drivers. The silver painted cab, a brand new vehicle costing £4000, will be used, free of charge, for fund raising events for the Queen's Silver Jubilee Appeal. The rest of the time it will work as a normal cab
