Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s editorial director, said: “This is a smashing car perfectly suited to any aspiring royal.

“The Audi RS6 Avant is one of the fastest estate cars on the market doing 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds, and it has a roaring exhaust to excite any petrol head.

“The car boasts a 17 reg and low mileage, so it begs the questions why is the prince selling so soon?

“Maybe he’s on the market for a bigger family car, in which case we’d recommend a Skoda Superb, which won the best family car in our recent New Car Awards, or maybe he’s after an electric car, having driven Meghan away after their wedding in an electric Jag?”

The automatic gearbox estate, has a four-litre engine and is a 2017 model that Harry is thought to have only driven for around 12 months.

It has a wealth of extra features from privacy glass and heated front and rear seats to a heads up display and 21-inch alloy wheels that cost more than £11,000.

A spokesman for Overton Prestige said: “Due to data protection we can’t confirm who sold the vehicle but we are completely satisfied that this car was used personally by Prince Harry over the course of the last year.”
