As Lord-Lieutenant, Peaches is Her Majesty's representative in the City and County of Bristol and her first and foremost duty is to uphold the dignity of the Crown. She will follow the example of the Queen and other members of the Royal family and seek to promote a good atmosphere and a spirit of co-operation in the City; she will encourage amicable and productive relationships between all sectors, whether involving the voluntary, social, commercial or civic life of the City. Lord-Lieutenants also have traditional links with the Armed Forces and exercise leadership in a wide range of matters, from civil and defence to professional and voluntary. The Lord-Lieutenant is also the Chairperson of the Advisory Committee on Justices of the Peace.
