We wouldn’t want to patronise the Queen or anything…BUT JUST LOOK AT HER LITTLE FACE! Commuters travelling on the Great Northern train service from King’s Lynn station to King’s Cross got a royal surprise on Monday morning when her Majesty jumped aboard. The Queen was returning from a rather lengthy Christmas break at Sandringham (it’s alright for some) and is a regular on the route; so much so that the little side entrance that she nips through at the station has been renamed the Queen’s Gate.
Quite the National Rail Representative, when her Maj became the longest-reigning monarch, she celebrated by opening a railway line in Scotland and the lady herself can be seen perching daintily on the armrest of a train headed from London to Edinburgh back in 1991. Okay, so ‘regular’ might be pushing it…
But before you get all excited and start imagining sharing gin and tonics from the trolley with old Queenie, you should know that she only travels First Class. We said commuter train, not the “peasant wagon”, dah-ling. Turning 90 this year though, you simply can’t deny it – she’s still got it.
And here’s 10 photos that prove it.
