Britain's Queen Elizabeth is visiting Leeds as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour.
The 86-year-old monarch - who is visiting all parts of the UK to celebrate her 60th year on the throne - is being joined by her husband the Duke of Edinburgh on the tour of the city, which will include performances by choirs and meetings with local residents.
The city's mayor Ann Castle said: "It is a great honour for Leeds to welcome the queen and the Duke of Edinburgh to the city during their Diamond Jubilee tour.
"We are very pleased to be able to demonstrate to them what a marvellous city Leeds is and how wonderful its people are."
The royals will also see an acrobatic display and other musical performances while there.
It was recently revealed that Queen Elizabeth's popularity has soared in the UK.
The monarch is favoured by 80 per cent of Britons, an increase of six per cent since January.
However, in the survey of 2,009 people, the queen only managed to come third in the overall popularity list with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge coming first and second respectively.
Prince Harry came fourth with 79 per cent, an increase of seven per cent, while the Duchess of Cornwall is the most unpopular senior royal with just a 33 per cent approval rating.
