The King and The Queen Consort to visit Milton Keynes to formally mark city status

    His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort will visit Milton Keynes on Thursday 16 February to formally mark the newly conferred city status.

    Further details on the Royal visit will be confirmed in due course to enable residents and other well-wishers to gather and welcome Their Majesties to the city. Milton Keynes City Council will publish further details of the visit on its website.

    Milton Keynes Council Leader, Cllr Pete Marland said: “We are delighted that The King and Queen Consort are able to join us to formally mark Milton Keynes becoming a city, and to meet some of the people who were instrumental in making it happen.

    “We’ll be sharing some of the reasons we’re so proud of the city and explaining why our diverse and welcoming communities are so united by a love of where we live.”

    Milton Keynes Mayor, Cllr Amanda Marlow said: “It was an honour for Milton Keynes to have the Proclamation of His Majesty King Charles III read, for the first time as a city, having not been in existence for the accession of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the throne.

    “It is with enormous pride that we will welcome Their Majesties to our city of Milton Keynes. We look forward to introducing them to an array of charities and community groups that help make our city such a wonderful place to live, work and play.”

    Milton Keynes was named a city as part of celebrations for Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee in May last year.
