After discovering her name had been trending on Twitter, the CEO of Digital Citizen spoke of her “disappointment” at not being able to attend the opening ceremony this week.

In a tweet, she said: “Obviously disappointed I couldn’t attend in person but Her Majesty always comes through in a pinch. Thanks again TfL.”

While at Paddington station, the Queen unveiled a plaque to commemorate the day and was given a special Elizabeth line Oyster card.

In 2016, when the roundel was unveiled, she said she was delighted to share her name with the capital’s £20billion transport alink.

However, this isn’t the first time Ms Line has inadvertently been caught up in the online interest surrounding the Crossrail line.

Speaking to the Standard at the time, she said: “I’m thrilled about it. Nothing like waking up to a little insta-celebrity.

“When I found out I was trending on Twitter this morning, there were a few moments of ‘what did I do last night’ panic but now I’m just having fun with it.”

When asked about the chosen colour, Ms Line said she “loved the purple”.

The service will operate for passengers on Tuesday and comes over three and a half years since it was meant to open.

The new line includes 41 stations between Reading and Heathrow in the west, through central London, to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east.
