The Queen arrived at the station on a scheduled First Great Western train from Paddington.

She was shown around the station, which has undergone a £897m redevelopment, by Richard Parry-Jones, chairman of Network Rail.

This is the second time the Queen has opened Reading Station – she unveiled a £20m redevelopment in April 1989.
