The 57-year-old royal will unveil the land which has since been reformed after receiving a large sum of money in the form of £6 million to invest and transform the BAE site, according to KCFM website.

As part of Prince Andrew's visit he will be informed about the past history of the business estate area in Brough, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and will meet with the residents before he declares the facility as officially open.

And the team who have assisted in developing the site are "delighted" Andrew - who has daughters Princess Beatrice, 28, and Princess Eugenie, 27, with his ex wife Sarah, The Duchess of York - will launch the site.

Speaking about the opening and Andrew's pending arrival, the managing director of Citivale, James Appleton-Metcalfe, said: "We are delighted to welcome His Royal Highness to Humber Enterprise Park."

Not only is James eager to meet Andrew, but he is keen to reveal the newly developed area, which he has tried to "emulate the original version", and he believes an "exciting new chapter" lies ahead for the Humber Enterprise park that will accommodate various business.

He explained: "This is an exciting new chapter for the site, which is steeped in local history. In refurbishing the site, we have sought to emulate the original vision of its founder, Robert Blackburn, to create a facility that can accommodate entrepreneurial, embryonic and international corporate businesses side by side; this will be a community where business can thrive."
