Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, took the Tube on Wednesday to mark the 150th anniversary of the London Underground, the world’s first subway system, the Telegraph reported.

The royal couple was given commemorative fare cards which they used to travel one stop from Farringdon station to King’s Cross station, a journey that takes three minutes, CBS News reported.

According to the Associated Press, the last time Prince Charles traveled on the Tube was in 1986 when he and the late Princess Diana traveled to Heathrow Airport to open a new terminal.
