BBC News - The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh due in NI for three-day visit

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh
are due to arrive in Northern Ireland later on Monday for a three-day visit.

The Royal couple will attend a series of public engagements from 23 to 25

They will take a tour of Crumlin Road Gaol in Belfast and visit the set of
the TV series Game of Thrones in the Titanic Quarter.

It will be the Queen's first visit since 2012, when she came as part of her
Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

During that visit, the Queen and Martin McGuinness, Northern Ireland's deputy
first minister and a former IRA leader, shook hands for
the first time.

In April, Mr
McGuinness toasted the Queen
during a banquet at Windsor Castle as part of
the state visit of Irish president Michael D Higgins.

Mr McGuinness confirmed that
will meet Her Majesty again during her visit to Northern Ireland.

The Royal couple will stay at Hillsborough Castle during their visit and will
meet with Secretary of State Theresa Villiers and First Minister Peter Robinson
and Mr McGuinness at the castle in their first engagement.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will also attend a Royal British Legion
reception in Coleraine, County Londonderry, and a lunch at Belfast City Hall.

It will be their 21st visit to Northern Ireland.
