Welcome to our royal live blog


Good morning everyone. Welcome to our live blog of today’s royal visit.

The King and Queen Camilla are due at York Minster for the Maundy Service.

In this ancient Easter ceremony, the monarch will distribute the Maundy Money to 74 men and 74 women (signifying the age of the monarch).

It is the third time the Minster has hosted the service. Queen Elizabeth II handed out the money in 1972 and 2012.
