Her Royal Highness was also introduced to fourth-year music student Paul Murray who has overcome four major brain surgeries and multiple sclerosis to continue playing the piano. After his illness left him partially paralysed, the talented musician had to learn the more difficult technique of left-hand only repertoire to continue performing.
