Their Royal Highnesses The Earl and Countess of Wessex will be arriving in Guernsey on the afternoon of Liberation Day this year, as part of their visit to the Bailiwick for the 77th anniversary of Liberation and to mark Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

After the salute, Their Royal Highnesses will then visit the Guernsey Yacht Club, where they will have the chance to watch the Liberation Day Cavalcade as it travels around the Model Yacht Pond.

After the Cavalcade, The Earl and Countess will meet islanders celebrating Liberation Day along the Castle Emplacement, before leaving for Government House.

On the 10th May, Their Royal Highnesses will first visit Forest Primary School in the morning to plant a tree to commemorate Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee. They will also meet the winner of the local Platinum Jubilee for Guernsey flag competition.

Following this visit, they will travel to Alderney, where they will visit a number of sites and meet representatives of several Alderney organizations.
