Queen Visits Cambridge

The Queen has visited Cambridge.

Her Majesty officially opened a new plant science laboratory at the University of Cambridge's Botanical Gardens.

The new facility cost around £82 million and has been paid for by a grant from the Gatsby Charitable Foundation.

Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, said: "Cambridge has a strong record in the study of plant biology, a science which is now accepted as critical for our planet.

This makes the Gatsby Foundation's award to the University both natural and transformational.

We are truly grateful."

After opening the lab, Her Royal Highness attended a reception marking the 500th anniversary of St John's College in Cambridge.

Next week, The Queen is also visiting nearby Newmarket.
