The Queen catches train from King’s Lynn to London after Christmas break in Norfolk
The Queen left Norfolk to return to London today, catching a scheduled train from King's Lynn.
She walked down the platform wearing a grey checked coat and a headscarf and holding a bouquet of Tulips, accompanied by personal protection officers.
She boarded the 10:56 First Capital Connect service to London, sitting in a first class compartment at the front of the train for the 90-minute journey to King's Cross, for which a single ticket costs around �50.
The Duke of Edinburgh is believed to be staying on at Sandringham, where he and the Queen have enjoyed their traditional Christmas and New Year break with members of the Royal family and other guests.
It comes after the Queen visited the town hall in King's Lynn on Monday to celebrate the start of her 60th year as monarch.
