Despite speculation on social media sites, the Northern Ireland Office has been unable to confirm whether or not The Queen and Prince Phillip will visit the Coleraine area, as part of a tour of Northern Ireland next week.

Due to serious security implications, a spokesperson for the NIO said ‘it would be appropriate to disclose details of Royal visits of Her Majesty The Queen in advance.’

Last week, Buckingham Palace announced that The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will visit Northern Ireland between the 23rd and 25th June. Secretary of State, Rt Hon Theresa Villiers MP said the visit would ‘demonstrate the work being done to build a prosperous future.’
