King Charles to visit Milton Keynes

    The King will attend a celebratory reception at Church of Christ the Cornerstone to mark Milton Keynes’ new status as a city.

    During the afternoon reception, His Majesty the King will meet a range of community groups representing charitable, business, faith, environmental and arts organisations in Milton Keynes.

    A dedicated space will be made available outside the Church for local people to await the arrival of His Majesty. The car park between the front of the Church and Saxon Gate will be closed from 10pm on 15 February to enable a safe barriered area to be created. The car park will reopen after the reception on 16 February.

    Unfortunately, it was announced earlier this week that The Queen Consort had tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of her planned visit to Milton Keynes.

    "After suffering the symptoms of a cold, Her Majesty The Queen Consort has tested positive for the COVID virus," a statement from Buckingham Palace reads.

    "With regret, she has therefore cancelled all her public engagements for this week and sends her sincere apologies to those who had been due to attend them."

    When will The King arrive?

    His Majesty will attend a reception planned for early afternoon. Precise times won’t be provided.

    Which area will be closed, and when?

    The car park between the front of the Church and Saxon Gate will be closed from 10pm on 15 February to enable a safe barriered area to be created (as indicated on this map – green areas are closed for parking and are where the public can gather, blue areas are closed to the public entirely). The car park will reopen after the reception on 16 February

    Signs are already in place confirming that vehicles left in this area after 10pm on 15 February will be removed.
