King Charles III to visit Northern Ireland tomorrow

King Charles III is to visit Northern Ireland on Tuesday for a series of engagements, it has been confirmed.

The visit is part of the new monarch's programme of visits across the UK, and he will be accompanied by his wife Camilla, Queen Consort.

Charles will arrive at Belfast City Airport where he will be greeted by the Lord Lieutenant of Belfast, Dame Fionnuala Mary Jay-O’Boyle, and Northern Ireland Secretary Chris Heaton-Harris.

They will then travel to Hillsborough in Co Down for several engagements.

An audience with Heaton-Harris will be held there, as well as meetings with representatives of political parties in the region.

The royal couple will then receive a message of condolence from the speaker of the Stormont Assembly on behalf of the people of Northern Ireland.

After, they will attend a reception at the castle, hosted by Mr Heaton-Harris, which will be attended by some members of the public.

Charles and Camilla will also travel to St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast where they will attend a service of reflection for the life of the Queen.

They will then undertake a walkabout at Writers’ Square before leaving Northern Ireland.

The trip to Northern Ireland follows a visit to Scotland today (Monday), with a visit to Wales planned for later in the week.
