Excitement is building at Reed's School as pupils, staff and the community await the arrival of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.

Her Majesty, who is patron of the Cobham school, visits this morning as part of the school's bicentenary celebrations.

In 1813, Andrew Reed founded the London Orphan Asylum, which later became Reed's School.

The aim of the charity was to provide orphaned children with support, maintenance and an education.

As the school celebrates the bicentenary of its founding, a number of events are taking place to celebrate its success in the arts and sports.

The royals are due to arrive at 11.30am and will enjoy a performance from the school choir and unveil a new stained glass window before tour of the school, followed by lunch.
