ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Britain's Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday (May 23) toured toured a world-leading research institute dubbed the "Nobel Prize factory" in Cambridge. Peering down a powerful microscope to look at minute mice eggs, the Queen appeared fascinated as scientists explained their work trying to discover why some women trying to conceive produce abnormal eggs. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh arrived at the university city by scheduled train service from London, then travelled the short distance from the station by single decker bus, part of the guided busway service. The couple sat apart, each with a window seat on opposite sides of the bus which arrived more than 15 minutes late, although it is not known if the train was delayed. The visit marked the official opening by the Queen of the institute's new £212 million building which provides better facilities and equipment for the 600 scientists and support staff.
