Royal Visit for Bikenhead | Metro Rod Deeside

11th January 2019

Royal Visit for Bikenhead | Metro Rod Deeside

The Wirral is abuzz with excitement as they prepare for a momentous occasion on Monday - that's right HRH Prince Harry and his Wife Meghan will be visiting Birkenhead!


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be arriving in Birkenhead in response to an invite from MP Frank Field. They will be in the town visiting some of the community projects and groups that run across the town. The couple will be able to see some of the great work that these groups are doing to help the youth and war veterans in Birkenhead.


They're expected first to be visit the Wilfred Owen World War 1 Memorial in Hamilton Square, due to the Prince's military background this seems a fitting place to begin their tour of the town. They'll also be conducting a public walkabout to meet and greet some of Birkenhead's residents. The Wilfred Owen Commemoration celebrated the centenary of WW1 last year.

From here the Duke and Duchess will be paying a visit to Tomorrow's Women Wirral, a local charity who provide support to women to reduce imprisonment and offending. The charity supports women who chose to make significant lifestyle changes to better their lives in the area.

Following this Harry and Meghan will also be visiting The Hive Youth Zone, this charity is particularly close to our hearts in Metro Rod Deeside as we previously sponsored their Christmas festivities, you can read all about that here! The Hive provide additional support to youths in the area aged 8-19. They additionally support up to age 25 for those with a disability. The Hive's motto rings true to the work they do; 'somewhere to go, something to do, someone to talk to.' We're happy to see the amazing work they do being recognised by the Royal Visit.
