The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh visited Royal Holloway, University of London on 14 March to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee Regius Professorship of Music, which was awarded by the Queen in 2013.

Twelve Regius Professorships were presented to university departments as part of the Diamond Jubilee, with Professor Julian Johnson awarded the first title of Regius Professor of Music in April 2013. Johnson was head of the department of music from 2010 to 2013.

A ceremony took place to recognise Royal Holloway’s music department’s exceptional standards of teaching and research. A plaque was unveiled by The Queen to mark the visit and Regius Professorship. 

Professor Paul Layzell, principal of Royal Holloway, said of the visit: ‘It was a great honour to have Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh here at Royal Holloway to celebrate the Regius Professorship. We hope she enjoyed her visit here as much as we enjoyed having her.’
