Mrs. Queen Takes the Train by William Kuhn

Queen Elizabeth of England is feeling her age and experiencing a bout of melancholy, so she embarks on an impromptu visit to a place that has always cheered her up: the former royal yacht, Britannia. Disguised in a hoodie she has borrowed from a girl who works in the royal mews, she walks out of Buckingham Palace and heads for King's Cross to catch a train to Scotland where the yacht is moored.  On board the train, the down-to-earth queen reflects on her time in court and mingles with a cast of delightful companions. But when the royal staff discovers her missing, they set their differences aside to find her and bring her back before her absence becomes a national scandal.  Delving beneath the court’s formality, this wry novel explores the thoughts and feelings of the woman at its center.
