Oxfordshire residents will have the chance to meet not one but two royals tomorrow.

The Duke of York will visit the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory to officially open the Appleton Space Conference.

Scientists from NASA and Oxford University will take part in the conference.

The same day, the Princess Royal will bring festive cheer to disabled children who take part in the Shabbington Riding for the Disabled group.

Princess Anne, who is president of the charity, will visit the group’s Christmas party. Most of the children who attend are based at the John Watson Special School in Wheatley.
