Royal visits and the Lieutenancy

How the Lord-Lieutenant, or one of his deputies, is involved in royal visits.

Royal visit

The Lieutenancy is always involved in Royal visits to the county. The Lord-Lieutenant, or one of his deputies, is the first person to meet the visiting member of the Royal Family or Head of State and welcome them to Oxfordshire. The Lord-Lieutenant or his deputy is the local personal attendant throughout each visit.

The Lieutenancy through its activities is able to identify where it would be not only useful and beneficial, but also acceptable, for a royal visitor to come and visit Oxfordshire. It works with the host organisation on the planning and bidding process to be presented to the Royal Household and then, once successful, the Lieutenancy Officer manages all liaisons between The Household and host organisations for the visit.
