Royal Visit to NI

The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh, will visit Northern Ireland as part of the Diamond Jubilee tour of the United Kingdom.

Her Majesty and His Royal Highness will visit Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, and Belfast on 26th and 27th June.

Further details of the programme will be confirmed in due course.

During their visit to Enniskillen, HM and HRH will be accompanied by the Lord-Lieutenant for County Fermanagh, the Earl of Erne KCVO, who retires the following month.

In 1952, Lord Erne was briefly a Page of Honour to GEORGE VI and continued as such under ELIZABETH II until 1954.

On a personal note, I'd only wish to add that the royal visit to County Fermanagh is a wonderful tribute to the county and particularly to Lord Erne, who has given such admirable and sterling service as Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant for a quarter of a century.
