A shopping centre in Norwich is being renamed for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend in June.

Chantry Place will transform into Chantry Palace to celebrate the Queen's 70-year reign, with photo opportunities and games for families.

On the lower ground floor there will be a royal throne and red carpet with a regal backdrop and outside a royal guard will be on duty and available for photo opportunities.

The royal rebrand will run across the four-day bank holiday weekend, from Thursday, June 2, to Sunday, June 5. 

There will also be a "walkie corgi trail" where families can track corgi characters which have escaped the palace.

Visitors that spell out the jubilee-themed word can enter into a competition to win a royal day out, worth more than £300.

The trail will run from Monday, May 30 to Sunday, June 5.
