On 4 April, the Queen continued her visit and laid the foundation stone for the new dormitory building at the Nordic United World College.
Think about what it means when 200 students from 95 countries get to know  each other and get to know each other's culture. I think it's a brilliant move that we should have more of around the world, said the Queen after the foundation laying ceremony.
