    Because of the Queen Mother's delay in Mauritius, the new Nairobi airport -- which she had intended to open -- was opened in her absence by the Governor of Kenya, Sir Evelyn Baring. He read a message from the Queen Mother saying she'd been greatly distressed at not being able to perform the ceremony. But she looked forward to a future journey when her aircraft would land at Nairobi. The new airport has cost two and a half million pounds.
