As part of her Jubilee visits, The Queen will visit Hitchin's Market Square at around 10.45am before heading to Stevenage to open the Lister hospital's new 16m maternity wing at around 11.15am


Later she will travel Hatfield House where a DiamondJubilee tree will be planted in the grounds ahead of a reception and lunch.


The Queen's official opening of the new 16m maternity unit comes 40 years after the Queen Mother opened the hospital.


East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust chief executive Nick Carver confirmed that it would be known as the Diamond Jubilee Maternity Unit and said the visit was a great honour for the trust and its staff.


In Hitchin, the Queen will meet with shopkeepers and view a presentation by local school children as well as meeting volunteers at the towns British Schools Museum.


The Queen was due to be accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh but he is longer able to attend as he is recuperating from a bladder infection.
