The star of the collection is a 1950 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV State Landaulette provided to Queen Elizabeth II in 1959, according to a release.

A 1979 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI Limousine will be sold for £400,000-600,000 and a 1985 Rolls-Royce "Centenary" Silver Spur Saloon will be offered for £80,000-100,000. Details about the vehicle are sparse, but the auction company said the model was kept in the Royal Mews from 1959 to 2002.

The Duchess of Sussex used an identical auto on when she married Prince Harry on May 18.

That vehicle, used by Ms Markle and her mother Doria as they travelled from their hotel to St George's Chapel, was another of the 18 models built only for heads of state and the most notable of public figures.

The vehicle, used by Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, and her mother Doria as they travelled from their hotel to St George's Chapel, was another of the 18 models built only for heads of state and the most notable of public figures, the Sunday Telegraph reported.

The auto has high seats and large windows which allowed the public to see the Queen as she drives past.

Information on this will be on the Royal Collections Trust website, there is also the chance now to see a 1960 High Roof Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limousine which has been used many times by the Queen and Prince Philip on State Occasions next to where the Royal Yacht Britannia is moored in Edinburgh.

Buyers looking for something more modern aren't entirely out of the luck as the auction house is also offering a 1960 Rolls-Royce Phantom V High Roof State Limousine.

The limousine, also used by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh on state occasions, is now on display on the Royal Yacht Britannia in Edinburgh.

It is nearly identical to the vehicle Meghan Markle and her mother Doria used to get to Windsor Castle.

That vehicle, used by Ms Markle and her mother Doria as they travelled from their hotel to St George's Chapel, was another of the 18 models built only for heads of state and the most notable of public figures, the Sunday Telegraph reported.

"This is a remarkable collection of cars, and one that beautifully illustrates the history of one of the most celebrated and prestigious companies in the world", Malcolm Barber, Bonham's co-chairman, said in a release. That's no longer the case as the Phantom IV State Landaulette is part of a "marvelous collection of eight historically important motor cars" that were "held under the custodianship of Bentley" that are now going up for auction.
