Olympic Park to receive Royal seal of approval

The Olympic Park on Wednesday is having a Royal visit when The Prince of Wales, as Patron of the Canal and River Trust, and The Duchess of Cornwall, tour the waterways in and around the site by boat to view the regeneration of the waterways.

Lord Coe, Chairman of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games, will be with the Royal couple throughout the visit.

The engagement will begin with a tour of the historic 18th Century House Mill on Three Mills Island, Stratford, where they will meet staff, volunteers and supporters of the project.

Their visit includes the official launch one of the new Water Chariots that will ferry sports fans to the Games area followed by a tour of the Olympic Park.
