The Palace Review: Week of 27th October

The ‘Palace Review’ will be structured differently starting this week. Many of our readers asked if it was possible to list each member of the Royal Family separately. Royal Central has taken this into consideration and therefore will try the new format.

The Queen

On Tuesday, The Queen Patron and The Duke of Edinburgh will give a reception for members of the Victoria Cross and George Cross Association, at Buckingham Palace.

On Thursday, Her Majesty and Prince Philip will be in Wolverhampton. They will visit International Security Printers to see the work of the specialist postage stamp printers as well as tour the factory floor, meeting staff involved in the production and inspection of stamps. The Royal Party will watch the printing process at work and view an archive stamp display before proceeding to the stamp finishing and inspection department. Her Majesty will unveil a plaque to mark the visit before departing.

The second engagement of the day on Thursday will see The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh formally open the new Jaguar Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Centre.

Her Majesty and Prince Philip will view a model of a wall-mounted ‘exploded’ engine display and hear an explanation of the parts involved. They will tour the manufacturing facility, meet with staff and apprentices and view tools and engine components.

At the end of the engagement, The Queen will unveil a plaque to mark the opening of the new facility before attending a private lunch.
