Harlow’s letter comes after the King and Queen visited Doncaster to confer city status in a special ceremony at the Mansion House last November.

Thousands of people lined the High Street to catch a glimpse of the couple who staged an impromptu walkabout among flag-waving crowds before meeting civic leaders, MPs and local business and charity chiefs in a ceremony inside the building and where the pair were presented with gifts including a Paddington Bear soft toy.
