An intercity train from the Great Western Railway (GWR) has been named after The Princess Royal.

They have done so in recognition of her support of more than 300 charities, organisations and military regiments.

The Princess Royal and her husband, Sir Tim Laurence, attended the naming ceremony at London Paddington station.

Mark Hopwood, Great Western Railway Managing Director, said: “Naming trains has been a tradition on the railway, and especially on the Great Western Railway, since the earliest days of train travel. Today, GWR proudly continues this tradition, recognising and celebrating inspirational individuals who have shaped the communities and the nation. Her Royal Highness has dedicated a large part of her working life to official engagements and visits and we are delighted to recognise this immense contribution by carrying her name on the side of this Intercity Express Train.”
