Smiling Queen uses oyster card as she makes surprise appearance to see new Elizabeth line in London

The Queen has made a surprise visit to see the new Elizabeth line at London’s Paddington Station, Buckingham Palace has said.

The 96-year-old monarch joined her youngest son, the Earl of Wessex, for the official visit.

They were welcomed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and Transport for London commissioner Andy Byford.

It was not known whether she would be able to attend – partly because Her Majesty has been suffering mobility problems.

“In a happy development, Her Majesty The Queen is attending today’s event to mark the completion of the Elizabeth line,” the palace said.

“Her Majesty was aware of the engagement and the organisers were informed of the possibility she may attend.”

Holding a walking stick, the monarch emerged from a transparent lift and smiled brightly, looking resplendent in a Stewart Parvin double-wool crepe coat in sunshine yellow.

That was paired with an A-line silk dress in shades of yellow, royal blue and turquoise, and a matching hat by Rachel Trevor-Morgan.

She was also wearing her Singapore brooch.
