Members of the royal family will visit cities throughout the United Kingdom to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Buckingham Palace has announced plans for royal visits across the UK during the special holiday weekend. Several members, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will meet with local communities to celebrate the monarch's 70 years of public service.

On Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Cardiff Castle in Wales to meet performers and crew members ahead of the city's special Platinum Jubilee celebration concert. The pair will view the event rehearsals and also lend a hand on some of the final preparations for the show, which will feature some of Wales' most famous musicians and entertainers.

Princess Anne will arrive in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Friday, accompanied by her husband Sir Timothy Laurence. Following a visit to the Edinburgh Zoo, where she will take part in an animal handling session alongside local children, the princess will visit the Royal Navy ship HMS Albion and meet representatives of royal patronages across Scotland.

Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex will travel to Northern Ireland as members of the public to celebrate the Queen and their local communities' history over the past 70 years. They will meet children taking part in multicultural street performances.

The visits will take place in the days following the traditional balcony appearance at Trooping the Colour on Thursday. Earlier this month, a palace spokesperson confirmed that the appearance will be limited to the monarch and working members of the royal family and their children.
