The joins Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip at the Baker Street station Wednesday to mark the 150th anniversary of the London Underground. The duchess displayed true “turn”-style for the occasion in a blue-and-black designer coat and black beret.
Lest you forget, there’s a big reminder that you are in the presence of a queen. The 86-year-old monarch, who spent several days hospitalized with a stomach bug last week, dresses in an elegant tweed outfit for the historic “tube” network tour.
The expectant duchess gets pinned down with a “Baby on Board” button, given to pregnant riders so fellow passengers will know to offer up their seats. The Daily Mail reported Kate as telling the queen, “I will have to wear it at home!”
Kate listens attentively while walking through an exceptionally clean car with transit officials. She admitted to her companions that she missed the Underground and would take it regularly before she was married.
How would you like to ride a train steered by the queen? The royal keeps her eyes peeled to a tube staffer, who shows off the new S7 train technology unveiled at the Baker Street station during the monarch’s visit.
