Each Royal visit is a special and exciting occasion for everyone involved.
Each year The Queen and other members of the Royal Family carry out approximately 3000 engagements. Royal visits include visits to schools, hospitals, factories, military units, art galleries, sheltered accommodation for elderly people, hostels for the homeless, local community schemes, and other British and Commonwealth organisations. Royal visitors may also carry out openings, whether of events or buildings, perhaps unveiling plaques and giving speeches during their visit.
It is the role of the Lord-Lieutenant to host The Queen or members of the Royal family when they visit West Yorkshire. The Lord-Lieutenant’s office will help organise the detail of any event, to help you ensure that it runs smoothly and that all your guests enjoy their day.
The Royal family may visit one region for an entire day and attend a range of venues.
