Queen to mark D-Day landings

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are to travel to Normandy to attend events commemorating the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, Buckingham Palace has said.

The engagements will form part of a three-day state visit to France in June, being made by the Queen and Philip following an invitation by France's president Francois Hollande.

The monarch last made a state visit to France in April 2004.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: "The Queen will make a state visit to France from June 5-7."
