A statement from the University of Derby on the death of Her Majesty The Queen

8 September 2022

It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Her Majesty The Queen this evening.

Her Majesty has given this country, and its realms and commonwealth, 70 years of dedication and service. This is a remarkable achievement, and her commitment and leadership are an inspiration to us all. She will be greatly missed. 

We now enter a national period of mourning, with the funeral due to be held in the coming days. We will work through any changes we may need to make to our activities.

Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.

Professor Kathryn Mitchell CBE DL

Vice-Chancellor
