A ceremony opening the Channel Tunnel between the UK and France is attacked by Cobra Commander, who kidnaps the Queen of England. Big Ben rallies Wet-Suit and Big Bear for a rescue attempt, but it is unsuccessful and they are left trapped in a flooding portion of the tunnel. As they escape using an abandoned Cobra Earthquake, Cobra goes on to steal the Crown Jewels, briefly trapping Duke and Scarlett below ground in the process.
As Cobra Commander heads to Buckingham Palace with the Queen in tow, Big Ben's team uses a train to exit the second tunnel, but its brakes are disabled by an attack from Road Pig. Duke and Scarlett use the General to block the tracks, stopping the train. The Joes fight off Sludge Vipers on the way to the Palace, where they confront Cobra Commander. The hostage Queen and her corgi easily put Cobra to flight, but Scarlett skips out on the Queen's invitation to tea in order to go shopping, dragging Duke along.
