Aung San Suu Kyi addresses Parliament
In a rare honour normally only accorded to visiting heads of state, Aung San Suu Kyi will address both Houses of Parliament on Thursday.
Burma”s famous pro-democracy campaigner will deliver her speech in Westminster Hall – the most historic part of the Palace of Westminster.
The ceremony follows her emotional return to Oxford, the city where she raised a family with husband Michael Aris.
It”s the first time in 24 years the activitist has been back – she didn”t dare to leave Burma in case the authorities refused to let her re-enter.
On Wednesday, Ms Suu Kyi was reunited with her relatives and was also awarded an honorary doctorate by Oxford University.
The trip to Britain is part of a European-wide tour that has also included Oslo.
From there she was flown to Dublin on Bono”s private jet.
