Kate to Join The Queen On Tour
Catherine Middleton will join The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, as they commence their Diamond Jubilee UK Royal Tour next week.
Thousands of people are anticipated to line the streets, when the Royal Tour arrives in the East Midlands on Thursday 8 March.
The Duchess of Cambridge will travel with The Queen and Prince Philip by train to Leicester, where they will visit students and staff at De Montfort University and meet with faith leaders and charity representatives in the City.
A performance dedicated to the diversity of the City will be enacted in Magazine Square, where The Queen will be asked to unveil a commemorative plaque. The Queen will attend a service at Leicester Cathedral, and later watch a Holi Festival performance created to celebrate the coming of spring.
Prince William, Duke of Cambridge is presently in the Falkland Islands, where he is working as a helicopter pilot. In William’s absence, Catherine has embarked on a number of solo engagements, including tours of Liverpool and Oxford, as well as attending an event at the National Portrait Gallery where she is the Patron.
The next date on The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee UK Royal Tour is the 23 March when The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh visit Manchester and Salford. The UK Royal Tour will end on the 25 July with a series of visit in South East England.
