Canterbury Christ Church University is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Her Majesty The Queen. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family at this very difficult time.
Professor Rama Thirunamachandran, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Canterbury Christ Church University and a Deputy Lieutenant of Kent, said: “It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. As a community, we join with many across the country and the Commonwealth to offer our deepest sympathies to the Royal Family.
“Her Majesty The Queen was a much loved and respected public figure. Throughout her extraordinary reign she showed devotion and a sense of duty to her responsibilities as our Sovereign and the Supreme Governor of the Church of England. The Queen’s commitment and contribution to public life and support for charitable and voluntary organisations for more than 70 years has been a true inspiration.”
