He is not the person you expect to bump into on the tube during your morning commute. For prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall, that man is looking after their Oyster cards, each charged up with 10 pounds. They didn't have Oyster cards 34 years ago. In 1979, when the Prince Wales took the underground to open the Jubilee line. That's certainly not the kind of oysters the royal couples are probably used to. Nevertheless, both managed to successfully negotiate the barriers at the Farringdon station. Going underground to mark the 150 anniversary at the tube network, Charles and Camilla took a 3 minutes one-stop journey to King's cross. A brand new but empty tube arrived to transport the royal couple. Having a re-comming to service at Farringdon, passenger numbers were limited. So limited that in fact, there was no member of public for the prince to meet. And unlike most people's commute, they have their pick of the seats. There was also plenty of air conditioning. At the end of journey, costing 2 pounds 10, they could have travel for free with the pass for the over 60. The couple emerged on platform nine and three quarters. A Harry Potter fan, the Duchess clearly felt like escaping to a fantasy world on the Hogwarts express. And just when you thought, Camilla might take a run up to the wall, the prince dragged her way. Instead, she had to make a do with a souvenir photo. "It was very weird. Oh, no, it happens everyday. It just occasionally turns up. Hey, royal's family. Hey there."
"They told us in the Harry Potter story he was going to be there. So we went out to have a look and he was just there. It was amazing."
Oyster cards finally back in pockets. There was to be no tube arrived back to Saint James. Instead, they let the royal Bentley take the strain.
