Royal Visit by HRH The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay to Johnstons of Elgin.

Royal visits are an important part of the Royal Family’s role. Many of the visits are connected to charities and other organisations with which members of the Royal Family are associated. In other cases, Royal visits help to celebrate historic occasions in the life of an area.

Visits are always memorable occasions for the hosts, and provide a high-profile celebration of their work and achievements.

All visits are carefully planned to ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to see or meet members of the Royal Family.

Requests for Royal visits can be submitted to the relevant Private Secretary with a copy to the Lord-Lieutenant or directly to the Lord-Lieutenant.

Submissions should contain the reason for the Royal visit (ie new building, anniversary etc.) and brief background notes on the event/organisation.

The Lord-Lieutenant can also advise on how to contact the various Royal households.
