Queen to visit King’s Lynn-based Palm Paper and West Norfolk Deaf Association next week

The Queen will get a taste of how the world's largest newsprint machine operates during a visit to King's Lynn next week.

The 84-year-old monarch and the Duke of Edinburgh will visit Palm Paper, on the Saddlebow Industrial Estate, just after the morning rush hour next Wednesday.

On arriving at the paper mill, the Royal couple will be greeted by the Lord Lieutenant for Norfolk Richard Jewson before being shown a model of the new paper mill site by the company's chief executive Dr Wolfgang Palm.

The Queen will then embark on a tour of the building and the main control room while Prince Phillip visits the machine room.

When the pair are reunited they will meet Palm Paper employees before the monarch unveils a plaque.

Following the tour of paper mill, the couple will then travel into King's Lynn town centre to meet staff, volunteers, trustees who work at the West Norfolk Deaf Association's centre in Railway Road.
