It is with deepest sorrow that the University learned of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
UEA Vice-Chancellor Prof David Richardson said:
“It is enormously saddening to hear of the death of Prince Philip. The Prince was a valiant and prominent figure of the country, who we have had the pleasure of hosting on campus in the past.
“He is a well-known figure in Norfolk due to our proximity to the Royal Sandringham Estate, and will be sorely missed by the people of the county and the country as a whole.”
In 1994 Prince Philip visited the University alongside the Queen, who formally opened the Queen’s Building on Chancellor’s Drive, for training the region’s occupational therapists and physiotherapists.
