Her Majesty The Queen, accompanied by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh had lunch with Professor Keith Burnett, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sheffield,  in the Firth Hall this noon.

Although a cold drizzle was falling and the temperature was dropping to four degrees Celsius, a large crowd of people gathered outside the main gate of Firth Hall and waited to take a look at Her Majesty.

“It’s freezing cold here, but it’s a chance to see the Queen. (I) Can’t miss it.” said James Helton. He was among the first ones came down to wait.

“They say there are three things you need to do when come to England. Watching a FA Premier League game, going to London, and seeing the Queen.” said a Chinese student. He had been waiting here for nearly one hour, but he said the chilly wind could not cool down his enthusiasm of seeing the Queen.
