Her Majesty in Enniskillen

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have arrived at RAF Aldergrove, County Antrim.

Inclement weather conditions at St Angelo Airport in County Fermanagh prevented the Royal Flight from landing there.

The royal helicopter however, claret in colour, has arrived in County Fermanagh and Her Majesty wears sky blue. The State Bentley Limousine is not being used.

HM and HRH are greeted by the Lord-Lieutenant of County Fermanagh, the Earl of Erne KCVO, and the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, the Rt Hon Owen Paterson MP.

The Royal Party travels directly to Enniskillen Carthedral, where crowds are lining the streets.

Her Majesty and His Royal Highness are greeted at the Cathedral by the Lord Bishop of Clogher, the Rt Rev John McDowell, and the Dean of Clogher, the Very Rev Kenneth Hall.

The service of thanksgiving is attended by the Lords-Lieutenant in Northern Ireland; civic dignitaries, including the Lord Mayor of Belfast; divines, including the Lord Archbishop of Armagh, the Cardinal Archbishop of Armagh; the Lord Eames OM; Bishop Jackson; bishops; representatives of military and civic Society, including the First Minister of Northern Ireland and the Lord Trimble PC, former First Minister.
