Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip will be joined by Prince Charles during their trip to Burnley later this month.
The Prince of Wales will join his parents in the Lancashire town on May 16 as part of the Diamond Jubilee tour to mark the queen's 60th year on the throne - and the trio will meet the Mayor of Burnley, Councillor David Heginbotham, in his last duty before he hands over his chain of office.
He told the Burnley Express newspaper: "It's a great honour for Burnley that Her Majesty has chosen to visit us as part of the nationwide Diamond Jubilee tour.
"I know Burnley people will give the queen, the duke and the Prince of Wales the warmest of welcomes and it will be a great day for our town.
"The Prince of Wales has become a regular visitor to Burnley and I know our town is close to his heart. This visit will be an opportunity for the queen and Duke of Edinburgh to see Burnley's historic heart as they travel through the Weavers' Triangle, and to see Burnley's future as they learn more about the regeneration of the borough."
The royal trio will take in the Weavers' Triangle and Victoria Mill, which is set to become the first University Technical College in North West England before they visit Turf Moor, home of Charles' favourite football team Burnley FC.
Barry Kilby, chairman of the Clarets, said: "It is a fantastic honour for Burnley Football Club to be hosting Her Majesty the queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
"To host the royal couple for lunch at the football club, which is very much the heart of the town, is a privilege and an honour.
"This is the queen's only visit to Lancashire as part of her Diamond Jubilee year tour of the country, so to know they will spend time at the football club is very special."
Charles is not the only royal to have previously pledged an allegiance to a football team after his son, Prince William, once admitted to being a fan of English Premier League side Aston Villa.
