Trinity mourns

The Master and Fellows of Trinity College Cambridge offer their condolences to the Royal Family. The College pays tribute to the tireless service of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during her remarkable reign.

The Master of Trinity Dame Sally Davies said:

I am deeply sorry to hear of Her Majesty The Queen’s death. The whole College community mourns her passing. We are grateful for her lifetime of service to the country and to the Commonwealth.

Her Majesty the Queen visited Trinity on several occasions.

Her first visit to Cambridge as monarch was in October 1955, to open the new veterinary school. With the Duke of Edinburgh and others, she had lunch in Hall at Trinity.

In March 1996, the Queen opened new student accommodation at Burrell’s Fields. Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen was met by the Master of Trinity at the time, Sir Michael Atiyah, and Vice-Master, Professor Gareth Jones.

During their visit, the Queen and Prince Philip met students and Fellows living in new accommodation, which was designed by the architect Richard MacCormac.

Master, Sir Michael Atiyah and Head Gardener, George Thorpe accompany the Queen on her visit in 1996.
