The Queen Consort postpones visit to the West Midlands due to 'seasonal illness' ahead of Milton Keynes trip

    The Queen Consort has been forced to postpone a visit to the West Midlands on Tuesday after contracting a "seasonal illness", Buckingham Palace has said.

    She was set to carry out several engagements including celebrating the centenary of Elmhurst Ballet School.

    Camilla was also set to visit the Southwater One Library in Telford.

    On Thursday 16 February, Their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort are due to attend a celebratory reception at Milton Keynes’ Church of Christ the Cornerstone to mark Milton Keynes’ new status as a city.

    During the afternoon reception, Their Majesties 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 Their Majesties. 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.

    Currently, both are still set to make the visit.
