The Queen is visiting Essex next month.

Her Majesty will attend a service at Chelmsford Cathedral as part of its centenary celebrations before moving onto speak to students and staff at Felsted School as part of its ongoing 450th celebrations. The school's headmaster Dr Mike Walker said, 'To have a reigning monarch visit Felsted School will be the absolute pinnacle of our 450th year celebrations.

"The School is busy preparing for this Royal visit and the children are very excited to be part of this special day."

The Queen will be accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh for the visit on Tuesday May 6th.

It will be the first of two Royal visits for the city in May; the Queen's cousin Princess Alexandra, the Honourable Lady Ogilvy, will be visiting Hylands Park on the 22nd to help celebrate the 75th anniversary of Home-start volunteering in Mid Essex.
