提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
He’s not the person you expect to bump into on the tube during your morning commute. For Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, that man’s looking after their new oyster cards, each charged up with 10 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. That certainly not the kind of oysters the royal couple are probably used to. Nonetheless, both managed to successfully negotiate the barriers at Farringdon Station. Going underground to mark the 150th anniversary of tube network, Charles and Camilla took a 3-minute-one-stop journey to King’s Cross. A brand new but empty tube arrived to transport the royal couple, having only coming to service at Farringdon, passenger numbers were limited, so limited in fact there was no member of the public for 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 their journey costing 2.10 pounds, they could have travel for free with a pass of over 60s. The couple emerged on platform 9 and 3/4. 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 at 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 every day, just turn up and say hey royal family, how are you doing?
They told us in the Harry Potter story he was gonna be there so we went out to have a look and ..he was just there and it was amazing.
Oyster cards firmly back into pockets, there was to be no tube ride back to Saint James, instead they let the royal Bentley, take the strain.
Sky News, King’s Cross
