Don’t be alarmed when you see Prince Harry getting into the left-hand side of a Jaguar to his reception – it’s perfectly acceptable, although not the norm in the U.K.

Shortly after Harry and his American bride Meghan Markle tied the knot, the newlyweds hopped into a in a silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero and headed to the reception Frogmore House in Windsor.

The E-Type was originally manufactured in 1968, but has been converted to electric power. The license plate on the car is a nod to their wedding date, reading “E190518.”

Unlike most cars in the U.K., this car left-hand drives, but the Duke does still have to follow U.K. rules and drive on the left side of the road.

Luckily, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle won’t have to worry about overtaking any cars or watching out for oncoming traffic – but the new Duchess of Sussex will have to get used to right-hand drive cars herself in the future.
