Queen and Meghan Markle disembark The Royal Train in 2018

She will join Prince William on board the British Royal Train on Sunday for a tour across the country with multiple stop-offs. This weekend’s outing is thought to be Kate’s first ever ride on the iconic train.


Meghan Markle was given the privilege of travelling on the train with the Queen shortly after she tied the knot with Prince Harry in 2018.

But it seems Kate, 38, had to wait a little longer to earn her spot in the nine-carriage train which includes sleeper, dining and lounge compartments.

Kate and William, 38, will visit key workers, outstanding communities and individuals who have helped make a difference during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They will meet care home staff, teachers, schoolchildren and volunteers to hear about their efforts to push through during the crisis.

Prince William has travelled on the train on multiple occasions.

The luxurious mode of transport was first used by Queen Consort Adelaide in 1840.

And in 1842 Queen Victoria became the first reigning monarch to ride in the train.
