Lord Lieutenants of Durham and North Yorkshire

the mayor

Lord Lieutenants are the representatives of the Crown for each county in the United Kingdom. Men and women of all backgrounds are appointed to this role by The Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister. The Lord Lieutenant carries out a wide variety of duties, working closely with voluntary services, benevolent organisations and local businesses.

The main duties of the Lord-Lieutenant are:

  • Organisation of all official Royal visits to their county. On the day of an engagement they escort the Royal visitor around the different locations.
  • Presentation of decorations (where the recipient is unable to attend an Investiture), The Queen's Awards for Export and Technology, and Queen's Scout and Queen's Guide Awards.
  • Responsibility for ensuring that The Queen's Private Office is kept informed about local issues relating to their area, particularly when a Royal visit is being planned.

Invitations to members of the Royal Family should be sent to the Lord Lieutenant. They can also advise on how to contact the various Royal households.
