The Prince Of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will be making an official visit to the Royal Albert Dock next week in recognition of its royal status.
Tuesday 12th February will mark the second time this year Merseyside has hosted a royal visit after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Birkenhead in January.
The Prince will be met by Dave Roscoe, chair of the board of directors, along with chief executive of Royal Albert Dock Ltd, Sue Grindrod.
His Royal Highness will be given a tour around the dock to meet various stakeholders, local businesses and receive a special tour of the International Slavery Museum.
Amongst other retailers, The Prince Of Wales will meet founders of The Leather Satchel Company, Keith and Gail Henshaw, who had previously gifted Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis three satchels during a visit in 2018.
The Prince will be shown the original plaque that marked the opening of the Dock by Prince Albert in 1846 and the re-opening of the dock by the Prince of Wales in 1988.
The Duke Of Cornwall will also be dropping by at The University of Liverpool’s Institute of Irish Studies, accompanied by the president of Ireland, Michael D Higgins and visiting St Georges Hall to view the renovations to its recently discovered under-croft.
