The pair will attend the official opening of the Storehouse Theatre, a lunch at Chester Town Hall and also open a new bridge. While this might seem standard practice for royal engagements with the Queen, this is actually quite a first.

The Irish actor starred as former "True IRA" member Hugh in the sixth and seventh seasons of the FX drama. "May he rest in peace".

While Sons of Anarchy was arguably O'Neill's most prominent work, he had a string of sucessful roles under his belt before his death.

He had roles in Undercovers, Inspector George Gently and Rebel Heart, as well as appearances in Strangers in the Night and Moore Street Masala. He began his acting career in 1997, appearing in the TV movie Ballyseed.
