Making Of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Mini – Video
This unique car is finished in Crystal White. Silver-blue accent strips lend the body a distinctive look and the black band that wraps around the car features a blue-tinted matt silver paint finish. Recognisable MINI design features in chrome, such as the frame for the hexagonal radiator grille, the door handles and the surrounds for the headlights and rear lights are topped off with a blue-black tinted clear coat, bringing modernity and a freshness of detail to the MINI. Rear lights in Union Jack design and dark-blue matt metallic wheel rims put the finishing touches to its external appearance.
A particular highlight of the exterior is the roof’s paint finish, which uses multiple colours. The roof graphic is applied meticulously by hand in several layers and brings together elements of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s national flags – the Union Jack and the Stars & Stripes. The special MINI’s side scuttles around the side turn signal indicators have been 3D-printed. When the car is opened, they project an exclusive “Just Married” welcome onto the ground in front of the driver’s door and front-passenger door.
Satellite Grey leather has been chosen for the interior and provides the ideal backdrop against which to accentuate the bespoke elements of the MINI. The blue-black tinted clear coat of the chrome exterior elements can also be found on selected chrome interior features. Another special feature of the interior is an accent inspired by the roof graphic, which is integrated into the trim strips in the doors, behind the steering wheel and into the head restraints. On the latter, there is an abstract take on the Union Jack on one side and a Stars & Stripes perforation and stitching on the other.
