The Queen's Cambridge Visit

Looking lovely as always, Her Majesty the Queen were met with adoring crowds as she came to Cambridge to endorse the city's Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen's visit will undoubtedly bring attention and funding to the vaunted research center, a welcome boon to the local science industry.

The Queen, wearing a pink coat and hat, was met by Mayor Sheila Stuart and the Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Hugh Duberly.

The royal party boarded a guided bus, which travels along some of its route on concrete tracks.

The Queen and duke will visit a medical research laboratory and a maternity hospital in the city later.

They will be shown around the £212m Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB), one of the world's leading research institutes dedicated to tackling major problems in human health and disease.

The Queen and duke will later meet staff at the Rosie Maternity Hospital, visit the cafe and unveil a plaque to commemorate their visit.
