The King and Queen Consort of the United Kingdom, Charles and Camilla, have recorded an announcement to remind train passengers across the country to “mind the gap”.
This message was recorded earlier this year at Highgrove by the audio team from Transport for London and will be played at every railway station across the UK and all London Underground stations between Friday and Monday, according to the Rail Delivery Group (RDG).
In the recorded message, the King and Queen Consort extend their greetings to passengers before reminding them to “mind the gap”.
This phrase is already a common warning at London Underground stations. RDG chief executive Jacqueline Starr said that the coronation is a rare and exciting event, and that rail passengers are included in this historic moment.
Network Rail chief executive Andrew Haines praised station colleagues for their efforts in welcoming people to London for the coronation, and for the added touch of being welcomed by King Charles III and Queen Camilla.
Meanwhile, London’s Transport Commissioner Andy Lord expressed the city’s excitement in hosting the global celebrations.
This announcement serves as a reminder to train passengers to be mindful of the gap between the platform and the train when boarding or alighting.
The message is particularly pertinent during a time of heightened activity due to the upcoming coronation weekend.
By having the King and Queen Consort deliver this message, it also adds a special touch to the event, making passengers feel welcomed and included in the historic moment.
The fact that this message will be played at every railway station and London Underground station shows the thoroughness and thoughtfulness of the organizers in ensuring the safety and comfort of all passengers.
