Pupils chance to meet the Queen
PUPILS and teachers from schools in the Harborough district will be getting the chance to see the Queen and the Royal party on Thursday.
The Queen is coming to Leicester to start her Diamond Jubilee visits to towns and cities.
She will be joined when she comes to visit Leicester Cathedral and St Martins House by the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duchess of Cambridge.
Pupils and teachers from Billesdon Parochial Primary, Husbands Bosworth Primary and Lubenham All Saints Primary will be there to greet the Royal party.
Anita Timson, headteacher at Billesdon said that they have selected pupils to attend by drawing names from a hat and that herself and two teachers are also attending.
She said: “I don’t know who is more excited about it. The teachers or the pupils.”
There is a strict dress code and women have been told to wear dresses and fascinators or hats and men have been told to wear suits.
The visit will include the Queen and the rest of the Royal party attending a service in the Cathedral where there will be readings and dances performed.
Pupils and teachers will be waiting outside in the car park to welcome her to the city.
