It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Her Majesty The Queen. We extend our deepest sympathies to The Royal Family at this very difficult time.
As a mark of respect, Queen Mary University of London has lowered the flag outside the Queens’ Building to half-mast and is inviting all its students, staff and alumni to contribute to The Royal Family’s online Book of Condolence.
Our President and Principal will be sending a letter of condolence to the Chancellor of the University of London, Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal.
The history of Queen Mary University of London is closely tied to The Queen and The Royal Family. We take our name from Queen Mary of Teck, the wife of King George V, and The Queen was our Patron.
Professor Colin Bailey, President and Principal of Queen Mary University of London said:
“This is an incredibly sad moment for the Queen Mary community as it is for the country and the Commonwealth. As Monarch, the Queen has been a constant in all of our lives. We are incredibly proud to have had The Queen as our Patron. We will take the time, as a University community, to reflect on and observe this moment together.”
