Now that Queen Elizabeth‘s winter break has officially ended, the 92-year-old monarch has left her Sandringham Estate to return to Buckingham Palace. And if you assume the queen travels privately throughout England, you’re totally wrong as she was photographed taking a public train from her country home back to London on Monday, February 11.
In the new photos, the queen looked very cozy at King’s Lynn station in Norfolk, England wearing a long, striped gray coat over a camel-colored dress. She even adorably looked both ways before boarding the same public train that previously brought her to Sandringham in late December at the start of her winter break. And, in case you were wondering, Queen Elizabeth’s safety was never in question as she traveled with a few bodyguards by her side.
On Thursday, January 17, the prince’s Land Rover “overturned” when it collided with another vehicle. “Fortunately the injuries were very light. People could have been killed — the impact must have been enormous,” a man named Roy Wayne, who was one of the first people at the scene, said at the time. He recently told BBC Radio Four‘s Today program that he also helped the prince escape from his totaled vehicle. “I helped him to get out,” Wayne revealed. “[He] was obviously shaken.” Thankfully, Prince Philip is doing just fine today and even gave up his driver’s license following the scary accident.
