We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.
Many at the University have cherished memories of being in attendance when The Queen, along with His Royal Highness Prince Philip, spent time meeting our staff and students at the opening of the Sir Duncan Rice Library in September 2012.
Her Majesty’s links to the north-east of Scotland are well known through the many happy times she spent at Balmoral, and this connection means she holds a special place in the hearts of many in our University community, and the local area more widely.
Our thoughts and best wishes are with the Royal Family at this sad time.

We reflect on the unique connection the University enjoyed with The Queen over her long reign.
