The Royal couple were joined at the opening by the Crown Prince of Bahrain.

The McLaren plant at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre is set to create 200 jobs building carbon fibre chassis.

McLaren chief executive Mike Flewitt said the site “was more than simply a factory”.

He said: “Although manufacturing is an important part, it’s an innovation centre, a place where new technology will be developed.”
