Novelty does wear off

Well it's official I have ridden the London Underground more often than at least one London resident.
Prince Charles and his wife took a tube today - 1 station does that count?  Apparently the last time Prince Charles got in a tube was in 1986 - before Maria was born.  I guess he doesn't have an Oystercard of his own - which I do!

The reason for this ride was not that the carriage was broken but to celebrate 150 years of underground travel.  I think it is mind boggling that in the 1850s there were people who nutted out the whole underground system.
Mark has more recently shunned the tube to use the buses so I'm picking it wasn't Mark's commute that was interrupted by princes and media.
