The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will begin a three day official visit to Northern Ireland later today.
The Royal Couple will land at George Best Belfast City Airport before making their way to their official residence at Hillsborough Castle.
At the castle her Majesty is due to meet Stormont's First Minister Peter Robinson and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness.
The Queen and Duke last visited Northern Ireland in 2012 as part of her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
That occasion proved highly symbolic in terms of the peace process as it marked the first occasion the Queen met Mr McGuinness.
