The Queen will be coming to Barkingside today with the Duchess of Cornwall.
She will be officially opening the new head office of children’s charity Barnardo’s in the afternoon.
Crowds are expected to line Tanners Lane for the event, which will be the Queen’s second visit to Redbridge in less than two years, following her Diamond Jubilee tour in March 2012.
She is a patron of Barnardo’s, while her daughter-in-law Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, is its president.
They are due to arrive at 3pm and will go on a tour of the building, before unveiling a plaque.
