The Alexander Graham Bell Centre, which informally opened its doors in January, will be officially opened by the royal guest.

The centre, named in honour of the Scottish inventor of the telephone and who taught in Elgin for a number of years, will be aimed at developing communication and technologies to improve health across the world.

HRH the Princess Royal is the chancellor of the University of the Highlands and Islands, and will perform the opening ceremony.

Anne Lindsay, the acting principal of Moray College UHI, said: "Despite its size, it is no exaggeration to state that Moray aspires to lead the way in the UK in the development of digital health technologies."

The Princess Royal will tour the new building with Anne Lindsay, members of the college’s board of management and the Lord Lieutenant of Moray, Grenville Johnston.
