The Queen welcomes the Emir of Qatar during the last state visit

Royal fans still missing the excitement of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations can look forward to another day of spectacle in Windsor.

It has now been confirmed that the state visit by the Amir of Kuwait will be marked by a carriage procession through the town on Tuesday, November 27.

Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah will be greeted by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh before their carriage ride to the castle, which is expected to be watched by thousands of townspeople and visitors.

Businesses will be open as usual on both the day of the visit and during the rehearsal on Thursday, November 22.

But some road closures and traffic delays are inevitable.

Information booklets – containing the procession map, road closure times and parking arrangements – will be hand delivered to residents and business on or near the processional route from next week. The information will also be available on the council's website at www.rbwm.gov.uk

The Emir of Qatar was the last head of state to visit Windsor Castle in October 2010.
