The Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall will visit Barkingside today to officially open a children's charity's headquarters.
They will open the new Barnardo's headquarters in Tanners Lane from 3pm.
The Queen and Camilla, the charity's patron and president respectively, will be welcomed by Peter Brooks, acting chief executive.
As part of the royal visit, they will tour the new facilities, meeting staff, volunteers, and families who have adopted and fostered.
The Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall will then unveil a plaque.
