Great day for the city

Published Wednesday, 17 January 2018

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the city today, with flag-waving crowds greeting them as they went on a walkabout around the Cathedral Ruins.

The Royal couple were in the city for a double celebration. 

Their Royal Highnesses were officially opening Coventry University’s new Science and Health building, and beforehand, they visited Coventry Cathedral – including a public walkabout in the Ruins – to celebrate the city being named the UK City of Culture 2021.

They were met by large crowds of residents and schoolchildren and they stopped to chat to many as they made their way through the Ruins to the Cathedral.

 They were told of Coventry's work for peace and after touring the Cathedral, they went on to the University and to see some of the work of the Positive Youth Foundation in Hillfields.
