The Duchess of Sussex to join The Queen in Chester

Fresh off of her Honeymoon with The Duke of Sussex, The Duchess of Sussex will join Her Majesty The Queen for a busy day of engagements in Cheshire next week.

After their arrival at Runcorn Station, Her Majesty and The Duchess of Sussex will make their way to the opening of the Mersey Gateway Bridge where they will be introduced to architects, planners and community representatives.

As well as being treated to a view of the Bridge, The Queen and Meghan will be treated to a performance from local schoolchildren called ‘Bringing Communities Together’. Her Majesty will then mark the opening of the Mersey Gateway Bridge by unveiling a plaque.

The Queen and The Duchess of Sussex will then make their way to Storyhouse in Chester. Opening in May 2017, Storyhouse is a theatre, cinema, library, restaurant, bar and arts hub and is one of the country’s most successful cultural buildings. Her Majesty and Meghan’s visit will officially open the new building.

Upon their arrival to the Storyhouse, the Royal duo will be taken on a tour of the building which will include the children’s library where they will meet a Syrian settlement group who use the builiding for craft work.

Throughout their time at Storyhouse, The Queen and The Duchess will be enthralled by performances from ‘Fallen Angels’ – a dance theatre company for people in recovery from addiction – and a medley of songs from Storyhouse’s latest production, ‘A Little Night Music’.

One final performance at Storyhouse will come from local primary school children who will sing songs alongside actors from ‘Swallows and Amazons’.

The final engagement of the day for Her Majesty The Queen and The Duchess of Sussex will see them walk from the Storyhouse to Chester Town Hall where they will attend a Lunch as guests of Chester City Council.

The trip to Cheshire will take place on Thursday 14th June.
