Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire

The Queen appoints a Lord Lieutenant as her representative in each county.

The Lord Lieutenant has a number of ceremonial roles. For example, she helps to make the arrangements and formally receive the Queen or other members of the Royal Family or heads of state when they visit the county. She may also be asked to act on behalf of the Queen, for example, in presenting awards and honours.

The Lord-Lieutenant maintains links with the armed forces and emergency services and is also the patron or president of a number of county charities. Much of her time, however, will be given to actively supporting the civic life of the county, working with local councils and agencies, the emergency services, schools, charities and the voluntary sector.

You can find out more about the roles and responsibilities of the Lord Lieutenant and how to contact them on the Gloucestershire County Council website.
