Prince Phillip in Stevenage - royal visit after illness

The Duke of Edinburgh will be in Stevenage on Wednesday to officially open a business start-up enterprise.

Prince Philip will be at the Business and Technology Centre to launch the My Incubator project. Run by the borough council and Wenta, the scheme has helped launch more than 50 businesses, with over 20 currently at the Bessemer Drive facility.

The duke will meet entrepreneurs, schoolchildren, and business and community leaders before unveiling a commemorative plaque.

The royal visit was rescheduled after the duke fell ill in July.
