The Queen Visits NI

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have arrived in the Province for an official visit. They will carry out a number of engagements in Belfast over the course of their stay.

Her Majesty and His Royal Highness arrived at Belfast City Airport this morning. Dame Mary Peters DBE, HM Lord-Lieutenant of the County Borough of Belfast, and the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland greeted them on arrival.

The first engagement was to the studios of Ulster Television on the Ormeau Road in Belfast. The royal visit marks the company's 50th year of broadcasting and its switchover to high definition transmissions. They were welcomed by its chairman, Mr John McGuckian, and were taken on a tour of the building.
