The Queen is not happy with the new trains being used on the line to King's Lynn.

The information was reported after a meeting with angry commuters in Hertfordshire complaining about the service being offered by Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) who operate the King's Cross to Lynn line via Northern Trains.

The Sun on Sunday reported that GTR passengers services director Stuart Cheshire spilled the beans to the meeting in Hitchen.

He said: "The Queen doesn't like the new trains - she prefers the old one to take her to King's Lynn."

He indicated that she much prefers the seating layout on the 365 version rather than on the new 387 model.

Her Majesty travels up to Lynn every December on a scheduled train from King's Cross for her Christmas and new year stay at Sandringham, leaving at the beginning of February.

GTR has been in hot water with passengers since the bungled implementation of a new timetable on its lines across the country.
