King Charles III Yorkshire road closures: Where are the road closures in Doncaster on the day of The King and Queen Consort’s visit?

Their Majesties King Charles III and The Queen Consort will confer city status of Doncaster in a special ceremony and as a result there will be road closures in place.

Both The King and The Queen Consort, Camilla will visit the Mansion House in Doncaster on Wednesday, November 9, just a week after Doncaster was given its city status. The royals will be greeted by the Lord-Lieutenant of South Yorkshire Dame Hilary Chapman and the Civic Mayor, Cllr Ian Pearson and Junior Civic Mayor, Eva Shaw-Lewis.

Civic Mayor, Cllr Ian Pearson said: “On behalf of the good people of Doncaster, I would like to thank His Majesty King Charles III for honouring our city by coming to bestow his honour upon us. November 9 will be an historic day in the long and wonderful history of Doncaster and I look forward to welcoming him and The Queen Consort to the Mansion House. This is tremendous news.”

Mayor Ros Jones said: “Doncaster’s bid firmly highlighted why we believe we should be a city - we act, think, look and feel like a city and to be made one of the newest in the country is indeed an accolade. To have their Majesties come to Doncaster to honour us in this way is very exciting and I am looking forward to sharing this day with so many local people and communities.”
