Cornwall is preparing to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall as they begin a three day visit to the south west.
They're due to visit Looe where they'll see the town's new pontoon, visit the RNLI station and meet with people affected by the recent floods.
Prince Charles returned to the Somerset village of Muchelney today, 5 months on from the height of the flooding.
He met with residents, farmers and local businesses to see how the area is recovering after the worst floods in a generation.
Our Somerset Correspondent David Woodland reports:
Prince Charles will be in Somerset today to meet people and businesses affected by the floods.
His Royal Highness visited Muchelney on the Somerset Levels in February, and will be returning to see how the village is recovering.
He will also be visiting Glastonbury Abbey and Castle Cary train station to see how the tourism industry is coping following the flooding.
We're used to seeing them either training or in action in some of the world's trouble spots, but today marines from 42 commando, based in Plymouth, had a very different role.
They were providing sentries outside Buckingham Palace - and that meant changing the guard in front of thousands of tourists. Bob Constantine reports:
As part of the city’s annual celebrations of the work of the Armed Forces, almost 800 servicemen and women from all branches of the armed forces will be marching through the City Centre with Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal taking the salute at the Guildhall.
A Royal visit is normally a cause for celebration - and today was no exception in Barnstaple, when the Princess Royal opened a new play park as part of a multi-million pound redevelopment:
Princess Anne has unveiled a plaque at Clovelly, marking the death of 21 men in a sea disaster there in 1838. As well as speaking to the descendants of those mariners, and local fishermen, she is also meeting the Shipwreck Mariners Society's supporters and volunteers.
The charity began here in Clovelly after the 1838 tragedy and over 175 years has supported hundreds of thousands of mariners and their families in need.
Princess Anne walked down to the harbour along the famous cobbled street in Clovelly: a test for many due to its steepness and uneven surface.
Princess Anne is a keen horsewoman and took great interest in the village donkeys that had transported goods up and down the steep sloped village for centuries. They are no longer working animals and are now used as a tourist attraction.
HRH The Princess Royal has officially switched on the Diamond Jubilee Fountain at Clovelly at the start of her North Devon visit today. The fountain has been newly restored and is dedicated to her mother HM Queen Elizabeth II.
