December 18, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
Queen Elizabeth II turned a few heads at London's busy King's Cross station when she boarded the train for her Christmas holiday.Buckingham Palace says she did the same thing last year, but this is the first time the palace has allowed photographers to record the event.

Before boarding, a young girl gave the queen a bouquet of flowers.

The train reserved a section for her only, which normally seats 12 people.

She took a window seat in a first class compartment and was accompanied by a royal guard.

The Duke is already at Sandringham Estate, a vast 20,000-acre property where other members of the royal family will spend Christmas and make it their official residence until February.
