The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will send off teams starting the Tour de France in Yorkshire next month.
Scientists have announced plans to sequence King Richard III's genomes in an attempt to discover more about the 15th century monarch.

A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: "It is unfair for taxpayers to have to fund the case being brought by the Plantagenet Alliance and we are disappointed by the court's decision on this issue.
"We will now consider the judgment on this appeal and decide our next steps. We will continue to vigorously defend our position at the main judicial review hearing."
Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has lost his High Court bid to stop distant relatives of Richard III having their costs protected if they lose their legal battle over where the monarch's remains should be reburied.
Lawyers for Mr Grayling argued that taxpayers should not have to foot the bill.
But a judge ruled today the relatives, who have formed the Plantagenet Alliance Ltd to fight for the remains to be buried at York Minster, are entitled to a protective costs order (PCO).
Mr Justice Haddon-Cave ruled that he was satisfied that "it was, and is, appropriate, to grant a full PCO".
It is understood that loss of the PCO could have jeopardised the judicial review application going ahead.

Prince Edward will be in the region today. He'll be heading to Barnsley later to open to the new town hall gardens and fountains in the city centre.
The Duke of Cambridge said his son Prince George is "a little bit of a rascal" and "a little fighter" in an interview with CNN.
Describing the newest addition to the royal family, Prince William said, "He either reminds me of my brother or me when I was younger."
He said George "doesn't want to go to sleep that much, which is a little bit of a problem," and that his wife was "doing a fantastic job".
"At the moment, the only legacy I want to pass on to him is to sleep more and maybe not have to change his nappy so many times," William added.
