Lord Sterling, chairman of both Royal Museums Greenwich and the Cutty Sark Trust, said: "On June 25 1957 Her Majesty opened Cutty Sark to the public for the first time and we are delighted that The Queen and HRH Duke of Edinburgh, who has been president of the Cutty Sark Trust since 1951, will return to re-open the ship."
