Her Majesty The Queen is expected to visit Lancaster for the first time in 16 years.

Queen Elizabeth II is scheduled to visit The Duchy of Lancaster, which owns 
Lancaster Castle, on May 29.

It has not yet been confirmed exactly where she will visit, but an eagle-eyed resident spotted a Bentley car, thought to be the Bentley State Limousine, driving up the cobbles of Lancaster Castle –in front of the John o’ Gaunt gate – last week.

A spokeswoman for the Royal family said: “It’s expected that she will visit, but more detail will be released by Buckingham Palace two weeks before the event.”
