Hull all set for Royal Visit

More details have been revealed about The Queen’s visit to Hull this Thursday. Although timings have not been revealed for security reasons, it’s known The Queen will arrive by train at Paragon Station in the morning, where she will be greeted by City of Culture volunteers before embarking on a short walkabout.

This will be the first official visit undertaken without the Duke of Edinburgh, since he stepped down from undertaking public engagements earlier this year. Then Queen is expected to unveil a new plaque commemorating her visit before visiting the Siemens wind turbine blade factory. She will also meet school pupils involved in the “Green Power” project before concluding her visit at Hull University, where she will formally open the Allam Medical Building, built with the financial help of Hull City owner Assem Allam.
