He did not accept it. See the link - Manorama Online | Home | Kerala |

EDIT: Just confirmed the registration plate of the Bangalore Phantom. Its HR 16 E **** so most probably its the same car.
Yeah it is the same Car.

See Manorama's Rolls Royce below. I have merged two pics to create it

Yes I am very sure now. This Phantom stayed just a couple of blocks away from where I used to stay in Bangalore. The guy who has/had the Bangalore HR 16 Phantom is also a Reddy. Must be the same guy. He also owns a white Jaguar XF-S. Wonder what he's going to get as a replacement for the Phantom.

HH denied the gift. I am well aware of that news. But fixing a Royal emblem on the car for one day seemed unlikely, hence I doubted if he changed his mind later.

@Arunabh - As I said, most probably it will come back. If not, maybe another one, or a Mulsanne?

It is the same south Bangalore Phantom. Saw it actually last sunday also in his house. Surprised how someone gifted a used one, that too to someone like HH

Heard from a friend that the gift is accepted and will be used only once in a month for temple visits (not sure about this info!).

Some pics of the 'gift'

I don't see any connection between them. The Phantom was gifted to HH Uthradom Tirunal Marthanda Varma on the occassion of his 90th birthday celebrations.

So do those champagne glass rattle within those holders during a drive? If yes, that can be downright irritating!
