London, Nov 19 (ANI): When the Queen donned a pair of 3-D glasses to see footage of a scientific research project; it seemed just the latest step in the monarchy adapting to new technologies.
The Queen was in Sheffield to open 12-million-pound world-leading research center dedicated to the study of Motor Neurone Disease (MND), reports the Daily Mail.
And while her spectacles had a touch of science fiction about them, the Queen's visit to South Yorkshire was wholly concerned with fact-finding.
Accompanied by Prince Philip, Her Royal Highness unveiled a state-of-the-art research institute, which is set to be a leading centre for studying MND.
The royal visitors also met scientists and medical specialists who will dedicate their research to finding the causes and cure for MND and toured the new facilities at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN).
The occasion for the Queen's most modern eyewear came as part of a visit to Sheffield University's Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre where she and her husband watched a 3D display.(ANI)
