Royal Visits

A Royal visit is a special occasion which typically marks an event with which a town, school, city, business, organisation, community or voluntary organisation has or still is involved. It’s an opportunity for a member of the Royal family to join the organisers to mark and celebrate the special piece of work or occasion.

The West Midlands has a great number of Royal Visits across the region yearly, in 2016 there were 19 visits (including 3 private visits) to 37 venues.
