Smiling Queen arrives at Sandringham for the Christmas festivities
Richard PalmerWith a gleeful smile, the Queen kicked off her festive break at Sandringham today when she arrived at King's Lynn on a scheduled train service from London.
She and the Duke of Edinburgh sat with aides in a first class carriage on the four-coach 10.44 First Capital Connect service from King's Cross, their customary route these days to their Norfolk retreat.
It is believed that they each paid the standard first class rail fare of £52 for the journey.
The train arrived bang on time at King’s Lynn at 12.22pm after a 1hr and 38min journey via Cambridge and Ely.
