We are all used to the British Royal family enjoying a privileged life, but it seems that even in the family itself, some of its members are more privileged than others. Take Prince Harry. Until his departure to the USA with wife Meghan Markle and son Archie in early 2020, he was always seen as one of the most senior royals.
Photos show him travelling around the world on royal business in considerable style. But astonishingly, he has never travelled on the exclusive Royal Train.
William and Catherine’s great train adventure
Recently in December 2020 William, the Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge took a packed 3-day journey around Covid-hit Scotland, England and Wales on the royal train. The couple got to enjoy all the royal trappings on board, including the train’s royal bathroom. Those close to the Queen says she likes to travel on the Victorian train whenever she can but Harry has never been near it.
As well as the Queen, lucky royal guests on board the royal train have included the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, the Duke of Cornwall and his wife, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall.
Meghan top trumps Harry
Even more intriguingly, Prince Harry’s wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, has travelled on board the train which has always been used by senior members of the British royal family. Meghan famously took to the rails with the Queen on a journey from London to Cheshire back in 2018, when the pair conducted a very successful double-act royal engagement. No doubt, she told Harry all about it when she arrived home.
Never mind Harry, if you do get the chance to return to Great Britain sometime soon, maybe you could ask your Granny for a chance to take a rail ride and look around one of the most exclusive trains in the world.
