The Master, Fellows, students and staff of Trinity Hall, Cambridge would like to send congratulations to His Majesty the King on the occasion of his Coronation.
The King’s mother, Queen Elizabeth II, visited the College with HRH the Duke of Edinburgh in 2000 to mark the 650th year of the College’s foundation and reopened the Graham Storey Room after its refurbishment.
Under our Statutes the Crown has assumed the role of Visitor, acting through the Lord Chancellor.
Paying homage to the King and his connections to Cambridge, Acting Vice-Chancellor Dr Anthony Freeling said: “The University and Colleges are immensely proud of Cambridge’s longstanding links to the Royal Family – and to His Majesty King Charles III in particular.
“Not only was he a student here, but he has since remained a steadfast supporter of the University’s work, especially in the field of sustainability.
“His Coronation is a moment of great national and international significance, and a day of celebration in Cambridge.”
On Sunday a special Coronation Tea was held for MCR and JCR members. The Catering and Events team provided magnificent tea, coffee, scones and cake to all those who popped into the Fellows’ Garden to join the Master celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III.
