At 92, Queen Elizabeth is still showing us how to dress.

The British monarch arrived at the train station in King’s Lynn, Norfolk sporting a stylish printed headscarf (which appears to be Burberry), brown button-down coat, and her Launer handbag. In short, another timeless look from the Queen.

Behind her followed an assistant, carrying two of the Queen's bags—one red leather purse, topped with a bouquet of matching flowers, and a vintage briefcase. In case there was any question who's belongings were inside, one is helpfully marked with a yellow tag that reads "The Queen." It seems even the royals are subject to luggage mix-ups.

The train ride kicked off her annual trip to Sandringham, where the immediate royal family spends Christmas and New Year's every year. The highlight for royal watchers comes on Christmas day, when the family attends services at St Mary Magdalene, a church on the Sandringham estate. Fans line the path to the church in the hopes of seeing their favorite royal, and children line up after the service to give flowers to the Queen.

The getaway is always proceeded by the Queen's holiday lunch, a much larger gathering of over 50 family members at Buckingham Palace. Just yesterday, we got a peek at a few key royals driving to the palace for the event.

Meghan Markle recycled an Erdem dress that pre-dates her time as a royal for the occasion, while Kate Middleton opted for a festive pink number. We even got a glimpse of young Princess Charlotte and Prince George, accompanied by their ever-present nanny Maria Borallo.

Sadly, as it was a private event, we weren't treated to any full-length shots—we'll have to wait for the Christmas day service at St Mary Magdalene's for that.
