A representative of the British royal family is visiting San Jose Tuesday.

The queen's representative, the Deputy Lieutenant of London, is in the Bay Area personally inviting the Oak Grove High School Marching Band to London.

The band is being asked to perform at London's New Year's Day Parade 2014 and star in two prestigious holiday events in Italy.

The band will have to pay to get there, but their costs while in Europe will be covered.
