The Royal Family criss-crossed the globe, at a cost of almost £1 million, to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee last year.
While the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh remained at home, touring the UK, their family travelled around the Commonwealth to mark the milestone.
The Princess Royal visited South Africa and Mozambique to celebrate her mother's 60-year reign, travelling on a scheduled long-haul return flight between London and Johannesburg costing just over £42,000.
For the opening of the Paralympic Games a month later, the Queen flew by chartered plane from Scotland to London at a cost of £16,000, then returned on the Royal Train for £20,000.
The Secretary of State for Transport Patrick McLoughlin has told ITV London correspondent Simon Harris that he was "very pleased" that the Government had "recognised" the importance of London's transport infrastructure.
The Chief Secretary announced that the Government would be spending an additional £10 billion on school upgrades, alongside plans to rebuild the worst 261 schools.
Danny Alexander said:
We are rebuilding 261 of the worst schools as part of the Priority Schools Building programme. With the money committed today, we will complete this by 2017 - two years early.
But there are many other schools in need of repair and investment. The last government stopped even checking just how many schools were in need of repair. We have started again.
We will put £10 billion behind this, enough to clear the urgent backlog and we are investing too to create one million new places in a decade, across the country, including in Lancashire, Leeds and London.
