Royal diary: what's coming up this week
There's a state visit coming to town. Did someone mention tiaras?
Hi Royal Clubbers, it’s Danielle! When it comes to diaries, the royals keep theirs fuller than Bridget Jones. And this coming week is no exception with the South Korean State Visit taking precedence.
There will be plenty of pomp and ceremony to see as the King and Queen host the President of the Republic of Korea, His Excellency Yoon Suk Yeol, and his wife, the First Lady, Mrs Kim Keon Hee.
Tuesday will be a big day for royal watching as that's when all the key elements of the visit will be happening.
And the Prince and Princess of Wales have a major role to play as they will be greeting the President and the First Lady at their hotel in London before travelling to Horse Guards parade for a ceremonial welcome with the King and Queen.
The King and President Yoon will inspect the Guard of Honour, found by F Company Scots Guards.
And if you're in central London on Tuesday, you may just spot the royals on their way back to Buckingham Palace as they travel down The Mall in a carriage procession.
The President and his wife will view a special exhibition in the palace's Picture Gallery of items from the Royal Collection relating to the Republic of Korea.
They will then be joined by the Duke of Gloucester for a wreath-laying ceremony at the Korean War Memorial to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of the war.
The first day of the state visit will culminate in a glittering state banquet at Buckingham Palace – keep your eyes peeled for more insider info on this!
Will Kate resurrect a gem we haven’t for decades?
State banquets are always a highlight in the royal calendar because it means a rare tiara moment for the Queen and the Princess of Wales.
