Issued on 9/4/2021

Professor Stuart Corbridge, Vice-Chancellor, Durham University, paid tribute to the late Prince Philip today:

"Our community is deeply saddened to learn of the loss of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts and best wishes are with Her Majesty The Queen and The Royal Family at this time.

"Durham University is proud to have hosted The Duke of Edinburgh on many occasions, where he met with students and staff and visited Durham Castle and our Queen's Campus in Stockton. In 1951, His Royal Highness was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Civil Law."
