What does the Lieutenancy contribute to the county?

The Lord-Lieutenant is HM The King’s representative in Surrey. He supports the work of the armed forces, the judiciary, the Church and faith organisations. The Lieutenancy arranges and hosts all Royal Visits to the county.

More broadly, the Lieutenancy plays an important role in recognising and celebrating achievement and excellence of all kinds by business, charities, voluntary organisations and individuals. In that role it is responsible for making recommendations for national honours, for The King’s Award for Enterprise and The King’s Award for Voluntary Service, and for Royal Garden Parties.
