Antiques_RoadshowAN article on this website about the Helensburgh woman who taught the Queen to drive has caught the attention of the popular BBC TV series Antiques Roadshow.

Sophie Wogden from the BBC in Bristol emailed: "I work as a researcher on the Antiques Roadshow and I am currently putting together stories for a special ‘Royal edition’ of the programme.

"I recently came across an article by Maud MacLellan in the Reminiscences section of the website entitled ‘I taught the Queen to drive’. I was really taken by this story, and wondered if someone might be able to tell me a bit more about it, or indeed if there was anyone who knew Maud MacLellan?

"I would like to hear from any of her friends or family, but it must be in the next week."

The Trust website editor will be happy to pass on contact details to Sophie, and can be emailed This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . The article itself can be found here.
