The Queen has made her first public appearance since her illness to celebrate the anniversary of 150 years of one of London’s most iconic features, the Tube. Joined by her husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh and a glowing, 5-months-pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, Queen Elizabeth visited the bustling Baker Street Underground Station to mark the anniversary of the London Tube transport network. The Queen even managed to bag herself an Oyster card, though we fear it is unlikely we’ll see her popping on the Bakerloo line from Marylebone to South Kensington to visit Kate and Wills at Kensington Palace!
The Royals were invited to walk through a brand new S7 train which will soon run along the Underground, and includes air conditioning and walk-through carriages. The Queen proceeded to unveil a plaque which named the train ‘Queen Elizabeth II’. The group then viewed the oldest operational carriage in the world, a restored 1892 ‘Jubilee’ coach.
St Pancras International jpgThe Royal three were in high spirits at the event, and Kate Middleton was provided with one of London Underground’s ‘Baby on Board’ badges, which allow priority seating for pregnant females and save other passengers the embarrassment of having to guess! The gesture was greeted with lots of laughter, and Kate even turned to Queen Elizabeth and said “I will have to wear it at home!”
