Yesterday Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, known as the Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, became the first female chancellor of Aberdeen University – and the only Royal to ever hold the post.
She officially accepted the position, which dates back to 1860, in a formal ceremony held in her honour, by the University.
The university’s King’s College chapel choir performed Blessing, a piece specially written for the occasion by composer Paul Mealor, who also wrote Ubi Caritas for the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Following the ceremony, a reception was held for the Duchess in a marquee on the university’s grounds where she met with Unversity staff, students and honorary graduates.
God bless Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cornwall and God save the Queen!
FOR GOD, QUEEN AND COUNTRY
