Welcome to our coverage of an historic day

A union flag on Micklegate

Well, there hasn’t been one of these for a while – a right royal visit!

York is preparing for the first visit of a reigning sovereign since the late Queen distributed the Maundy Money in York Minster in 2012.

And it is our first chance to greet the new King Charles III and his Queen Consort, Camilla.

We’ll have all the coverage as it happens on this live blog – and tune into YorkMix Radio for full coverage too.
