Royal announcements planned for London Underground as Jubilee takes over capital

Travellers on Underground lines with royal links will hear some rather regal announcements as the Jubilee weekend unfolds.

Customers on the new Elizabeth Line, the Jubilee line and those arriving at stations with a royal link in their names will hear special messages marking the Platinum celebrations over the four day holiday marking the 70th anniversary of The Queen’s reign.

Transport for London will also put up celebratory messages at the stations as the Jubilee party unfolds.

Tfl has also put eight special Jubilee buses into service across the capital. The double deckers are decorated in purple and platinum and feature the official Jubilee emblem on their sides. They will serve routes across the capital that pass famous royal landmarks.

The Jubilee weekend takes place from June 2nd until June 5th 2022.
