Her Majesty The Queen will no longer be visiting Cheshire next Thursday, as a precaution, as event organisers cancel or postpone numerous other events across the area due to the global outbreak of Covid-19 coronavirus.
A spokesperson for the monarch said: “As a sensible precaution and for practical reasons in the current circumstances, changes are being made to The Queen’s diary commitments in the coming weeks.
“In consultation with the Medical Household and Government, Her Majesty’s forthcoming visits to Cheshire and Camden will be rescheduled… other events will be reviewed on an ongoing basis in line with the appropriate advice.”
Her Majesty was due to visit the Bentley Motors factory and Jodrell Bank on Thursday 19th March.
The Queen was due to meet long-serving members of staff at Bentley Motors and mark the firm’s centenary before unveiling a plaque there.
It was then planned that Her Majesty would travel to Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre where she was due to operate the iconic Lovell Telescope and unveil a plaque to commemorate the visit.
Her Majesty would’ve then planted two sapling apple trees, and concluded her visit at the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) global headquarters.
