Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are to return to the estate where they enjoyed part of their honeymoon. The royal couple will plant a mulberry tree in the grounds of Hampshire's Broadlands Estate where they stayed back in November 1947, during a two-day tour of the county.
The estate, located in the small market town of Romsey, was owned by Philip's late uncle Earl Mountbatten, who was killed in a terrorist attack in 1979.
Elizabeth and Philip will also mark the 400th anniversary of Romsey being granted borough status by King James in 1607.
Residents of the quaint town are working hard to make it a memorable visit with organizer's preparing for a turn out of more than 6,000 people.
Head of Romsey Town Council's preparations, Mike Richardson, said: "People have been buying flags and flying them in shop windows and in their homes. The bunting is going up in the town centre buildings and the whole town is getting excited."
The royal couple arrives in Hampshire on Friday.
