It’s no secret that Cornwall has a warm welcome for any visitor (as any of you who have been will know), but the county is preparing to give a very special greeting as Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh will be paying a visit to St Ives and St Michael’s Mount on Friday. Guests of our St Ives holiday cottages will be able to go along and join in this historical moment for Cornwall, so start practicing your most regal waves...
The exciting royal visit will see the royal pair wander along the stunning St Ives seafront before touring the RNLI lifeboat station. They should arrive at the RNLI station at 10.40am., where they will greet the brave team of volunteers and their families. After the tour they will be taken to the Tate St Ives to enjoy some of the artwork on display.
The royal visit will be the couple’s first to St Ives, and huge crowds are expected to turn out for a glimpse as they make their way around. St Ives remains one of Cornwall’s best loved resorts, and the couple will no doubt appreciate the beauty that has inspired generations of artists.
