Die ganze Sache wird auch in GB heftig diskutiert.
Der Bestatter oben in Schottland hat anscheinend mehrere solche Mercedes Bestattungsfahrzeuge.
Alle in Silber. Der Wagen musste extra schwarz foliert werden.

The fact that the coffin was carried in a German vehicle drew attention, particularly given the hearses used by British royals in the past. Prince Phillip's coffin rode in the back of a Land Rover Defender built specifically for his funeral. Even longer ago, the Queen Mother's coffin was carried by a Jaguar hearse.

It's impossible to be more British than the monarch of Britain, you'd think. Even if the Queen and the whole House of Windsor are of German heritage, only having dropped their original name of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha due to anti-German sentiment in 1917.

Regardless, a Rolls Royce or Bentley would have been more fitting for the task. For whatever reason, though, no special effort was made to secure a British vehicle for the job. In a way though, it's fitting, as the royal family has had a long connection with Daimler vehicles stretching all the way back to 1900.

In London wurde dann auch ein Jaguar für den Transport vom Flughafen zum Buckingham Palace verwendet.
