The Queen has been invited to open one of Scotland's flagship museums and art galleries following its renovation.
Visitor numbers are expected to rise by 600,000 a year
Glasgow City Council had hoped Her Majesty would officially open the west end's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in October 2006.
The Royal Private Secretary ruled that out but told the council which runs Kelvingrove 13 September is "possible".
The landmark was closed for a £28m refit in 2003 and is expected to open again to visitors by mid-summer.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum opened in 1902 and attracted more than one million visitors a year.
It is hoped the three-year renovation works will lead to an extra 600,000 people passing through its doors.
'21st Century museum'
Glasgow City Council said the renovation would create a "more accessible and visitor friendly attraction".
More objects will be on display in 19 galleries.
The local authority added: "The intention is to create a 21st Century museum in Glasgow's favourite Edwardian building and build an exciting future on a proud past."
Kelvingrove is said to be the second most popular visitor attraction in Scotland after Edinburgh Castle and the most visited museum in the UK outside London.
