Queen Elizabeth to visit Northern Ireland
Jun 1, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Britain's Queen Elizabeth will visit Northern Ireland later this month.
The monarch - who is touring the whole of the UK as part of her Diamond Jubilee - will be joined by The Duke of Edinburgh on a visit to Enniskillen, Belfast on June 26 and 27.
Further details about what the visit to the area will entail have yet to be unveiled.
Among the areas Queen Elizabeth has so far visited are London, Leicester and Liverpool.
Last year the monarch visited the Republic of Ireland for the first time in her reign, and wowed onlookers at a state dinner when she spoke Irish.
The visit was contentious because of the long history of trouble between Ireland and the British monarchy, but went by without any of the trouble expected.
This weekend sees the culmination of celebrations related to the queen's 60th year on the throne - in addition to a pageant down the River Thames, there will also be a special gig featuring the likes of Gary Barlow, Jessie J and Sir Paul McCartney outside Buckingham Palace in London.
