Message from Vice-Chancellor Professor Wendy Thomson CBE

On behalf of the staff and students of the University of London, I would like to express our deepest sorrow following the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. 

His Royal Highness served his country with distinction and  dutifully supported Her Majesty The Queen throughout her 69-year reign and their 73-year marriage. 

Our deepest condolences are extended to the entire Royal Family at this sad time. 

I will be writing privately to our Chancellor, Anne, the Princess Royal, to share the many messages I have received from colleagues, alumni and our teaching centres expressing their condolences on the death of her father.

An online Book of Condolence has been opened by the Royal Family.
