[Homework]2013-02-09 查尔斯王子夫妇乘地铁庆祝伦敦地铁开通150年

He is not the person you expect to bump into on the tube,joining your morning commute.For Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall,that man is looking after their new oyster cards,each charged up with ten pounds.They didn't have oyster cards 34 years ago,in 1979,when the Prince of Wales took the underground to open the Jubilee line.They are certainly not the kind of oysters the royal couple are probably used to.Nonetheless,both managed to negotiate the barriers at F station.Going underground to mark the 150th anniversary of the tube network,Charles and Camilla took a three-minute one stop journey to King's Cross.A brand-new but empty tube arrived to transport the royal couple.Having only come to service at F,passenger numbers were limited,so limited in fact,there was no member of the public for the prince to meet.And unlike most people's commute,they had their pick of the seats,they were also plenty of air-conditioning.At the end of their journey costing 2 pounds ten,they could have traveled for free with a pass of the over 60s.The couple emerged on platform 9 3/4.A Harry Potter fan,the Duchess clearly felt like escaping to a fantasy world on the whole walk express.And just when you thought Camilla might take run up to the wall,the prince dragged her away.Instead,she had to make do with a souvenir photo.
It was very weird.Oh,no,it happens everyday,it just occassionally turns up.Hey,royal family,hey there.
They told us in the Harry Potter story he was going to be there,so we went out and had a look and um...he was just there,and it was amazing.
Oyster cards finally backed in pockets.There used to be no Jube line back to S,instead they let the royal B take the strain.
